Summary
"This book describes the policies currently used at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in the clinical management of pediatric patients with cancer. It presents the guidelines practiced at the institution in the multimodality treatment of the most common childhood cancers and describes the institution's extraordinary Adolescent and Young Adult Program, a national model for cancer care in these select age groups. As in previous volumes of the M. D. Anderson Cancer Care Series, each chapter ends with a list of suggested readings and key practice points. The latter provides an at-a-glance summary of the important principles of pediatric oncology clinical practice."--BOOK JACKET
