    Is Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome of prognostic value in neuroblastoma?
    Does the occurrence of Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome predict a better or worse outcome in neuroblastoma? Does such an association exist?
    Anjan Kumar Dhua · All India Institute of Medical Sciences
    yes to some extent
    {Neuroblastomas associated with the paraneoplastic opsoclonus-myoclonus-ataxia syndrome are usually of lower stage and have favorable prognosis for survival }
    but however more important and robust parameters are
    age at diagnosis
    stage
    histology ShimaDA
    N Myc amplification
    ploidy
    loss of heterozygosity [LOH] 11q

    other non specific factors include the site of the primary tumor, serum ferritin levels, NSE, and nutritional status also see ---
