Learn About Neural Crest Tumor

What is the definition of Neural Crest Tumor?
Neural crest tumors are various tumors arising from neural crest cells which travel through the body. Neural crest tumors fall into four categories that are determined by their cell lineage: 1) sympathetic-adrenal tumors (pheochromocytoma, paraganglioma, and peripheral neuroblastic tumors (pNTS), including ganglioneuroblastoma and ganglioneuroma); Schwann cell tumors (benign nerve sheath tumors, neurofibroma, schwannoma, and malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors; melanocytic tumors (melanoma); and multiple lineage tumor syndromes (MEN; parathyroid adenomas, endocrine tumors of the gastroenteropancreatic tract and pituitary adenomas, medullary thyroid cancer, and diffuse gastrointestinal ganglioneuromatosis.

Neurocognitive Outcome as a Metric for Evaluating Therapeutic Intervention and Treatment Mechanisms in Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome (CCHS): A Multi-Site Study Using The NIH Toolbox

Summary: Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) is a rare disorder of autonomic and respiratory regulation that frequently alters oxygen delivery to the brain. In CCHS, neurocognitive function has been of great concern because of the potential for repeated hypoxemia and hypercarbia in activities of daily living in addition to hypoventilation with related hypoxemia and hypercarbia during sleep. ...
