Neuroblastoma is infrequently associated with paraneoplastic syndromes. Amongst the few, opsomyoclonus (Kinsbourne syndrome) is the most common neurological paraneoplastic syndrome and diarrhea secondary to increased secretion of vasoactive intestinal peptide (Kerner-Morrison syndrome), hormonal paraneoplastic syndrome.
