Although new treatment modalities have vastly improved the survival rate of children with cancer, the late effects of childhood cancer and its treatment are just being recognized. In this volume, experts in oncology, education, social work and psychology have pooled their experience in dealing with the late effects seen in long-term survivors of childhood cancer. The effects of CNS irradiation and intrathecal chemotherapy on children's cognitive abilities is described. Psychosocial repercussions of having cancer during childhood and adolescence are also detailed. Two research centres, representing Europe and the USA, report the late effects following allogenetic bone marrow transplantation. The book urges paediatricians, family physicians and paediatric oncologists to provide good follow-up of childhood survivors of cancer in order to detect potential secondary problems.
