This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date compendium on all aspects of sarcomas of bone and soft tissues in childhood and adolescence. After introductory chapters on the history, epidemiology, and biology of pediatric sarcomas, treatment considerations are extensively reviewed, with emphasis on the use of risk-adjusted treatment approaches. The pathology and biology of this diverse group of tumors are extensively reviewed. Promising new treatment approaches are discussed, and strategies for the development of new agents are appraised. The major common pediatric sarcomas, including osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma and non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcoma, are covered in detail. The authors are internationally recognized experts who offer a largely evidence-based consensus on etiology, biology, and treatment.
