The Pathology and Natural History of Childhood Tumours
- 29 Downloads
In the past few decades cancer has become relatively more important in paediatrics due to the advances in prevention and treatment of infections. In 1970 neoplasia was the second most common cause of death between the ages of 1 and 15 years (Marsden and Steward 1976). The improvement in the results of therapy and the study of aetiological factors have shown that paediatric oncology is a particularly rewarding field. The Children’s Tumour Registry in Manchester1 (MCTR) has kept records of all cases of childhood cancer in the North West region of England since 1954 and has provided the data on which this review is based.
