Neuroblastoma, ganglioneuroblastoma and ganglioneuroma are neuroblastic tumours derived from primordial neural crest tissue. The authors report a rare presentation of a ganglioneuroma of the mandible arising from a metastasis of an adrenal neuroblastoma. The pathogenesis and behaviour of ganglioneuromas is discussed, together with recommendations for their management.
