Abstract

Forty percent of pediatric neoplasms develop by 4 years of age, with a slight prevalence in males, the male-female ratio being 1:1.2. In industrialized countries, the cancer incidence in children is approximately 130-140 new cases per million children a year, meaning that in Italy, for instance, there are about 1350 new pediatric cases of cancer every year. Taking all the malignant histotypes into account, recent data indicate that 70 % of patients are now still alive 5 years after their diagnosis [88].
