Celiac plexus blockade in a 7-year-old child with neuroblastoma

Abstract

Celiac plexus blockade with ethanol is a widely accepted modality of pain control for adults with cancer pain. The role of interventional strategies in children is less well established. A 7-year-old child with abdominal pain secondary to a Wilms tumor was treated with neurolytic celiac plexus blockade. This resulted in control of abdominal pain for close to three months. This modality is underutilized and should be considered for children with pain due to upper abdominal malignancy.
