Abstract:

Reviews the epidemiology, pathology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, staging, prognosis, and multimodality treatment of both common and rare childhood cancers. Balanced consideration is given to all treatment options for each disease, including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and combination treatments. The authors offer expert, setting-specific advice on optimal irradiation techniques and recommended dosages, as well as appropriate immobilization devices and anesthetic agents. Available data on acute toxicities and late effects of cancer treatment, including secondary malignancies, are presented and analyzed--valuable information for guiding referring physicians, patients, and families in their decision making. Illustrations strategically reinforce key patient management principles.
