Ganglioneuromas are rare benign tumors that tend to be asymptomatic until large enough to compress adjacent structures. These tumors are often found during childhood during evaluations for other pathologies. Retroperitoneal ganglioneuromas may be a secondary cause of scoliosis. Here, we present a case of a child who was found to have a retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma during an evaluation for scoliosis.
