Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor in children. Neuroblastoma presenting with diarrhea as the predominant symptom is rare and can be a diagnostic challenge to the paediatrician. We present a twenty months old child with Retroperitoneal Ganglioneuroblastoma who presented with chronic diarrhea and refractory hypokalemia. Tumor removal resulted in cessation of diarrhea and correction of hypokalemia.
