Part of the Contemporary Perspectives in Neurosurgery book series (COPENEU)


Pediatric oncology has made tremendous progress in the cure of tumors, particularly malignant tumors, during these last 30 years. The result was a higher and higher rate of children surviving with a complete cure of their tumor disease, although with some sequelae, sometimes very mild and negligible, and sometimes very important, creating a secondary pathology during their growth.
