In brief: Sometimes

Stage 4 nb in children over 18 months of age is usually treated aggressively with chemotherapy, then surgery.
This is followed with consolidation with high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplant and then radiation. Finally, the patient receives minimal residual disease therapy with anti-gd2 monoclonal antibody with cytokines and accutane, for 86% 2 year overall survival.
