Abstract Neuroblastoma (NB) is the most common extracranial tumor in children and accounts for around 15\% of all paediatric oncology deaths. The treatment of NB includes surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. Unfortunately, most children with NB present with advanced disease, and more than 60\% of patients with high-risk features will have a poor prognosis despite intensive therapy. Agonists of the nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma) have been shown to have pleiotropic effects, including antineoplastic effects. The studies that addressed the role and the possible mechanism(s) of action of PPARgamma in NB cells are reviewed.
