Hypertension in a 6-year-old girl was the presenting sign of a stage I neuroblastoma. This tumor corresponded to a left adrenal gland mass. Hypertension resolved immediately after complete surgical resection of the tumor with an uneventful follow-up (24 months at the present time). Preoperative assessment by nuclear medicine techniques showed weak uptake of 123I-MIBG and 18F-FDOPA contrasting with high 18F-FDG uptake by the tumor.
