Abstract

Bone and soft-tissue sarcomas account for approximately 13% of all cancers in children and adolescents. A multidisciplinary approach involving surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists has led to a significant improvement in the overall survival of these patients. Chemotherapy has played a significant role in the treatment and outcomes of these patients. In this special focus section we will discuss the most important lessons learned about the use of chemotherapy for the treatment of these tumors. 1940-7041
