Adult-type soft tissue sarcomas in paediatric age: A nomogram-based prognostic comparison with adult sarcoma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Introduction: The study compares the outcome of paediatric patients with adult-type soft tissue sarcomas with that reported for adults, taking into account the effect of established prognostic factors. Methods: The actual mortality of our series was compared with that predicted by the nomogram developed for adults at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. From a previously-published series of 182 patients
