Abstract

Dramatic improvements have occurred in the treatment and prognosis of the child with rhabdomyosarcoma over the past 2 decades. Increased understanding of tumor behavior has improved survival and focused attention on important quality of life issues. Future therapeutic advances will depend largely on an improved molecular understanding of altered cell behavior and the continued efforts of multi-institutional studies.
