TO THE EDITOR: The National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) has proved to be a powerful tool for grading and reporting adverse events (AEs), especially in the context of clinical trials. However, in our daily practice as pediatric oncologists, we have noticed recurring deficiencies when the CTCAE criteria are(More)
PURPOSE Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are, after lymphomas, the most frequent gastrointestinal tumors in children, mainly located in the appendix. Best management remains unclear, given the absence of pediatric guidelines. We present the first Spanish series of pediatric patients with NETs.

We report a patient with an SLC7A9 gene mutation located in 19q13.1 on one allele and with a 19q12q13 region deletion on the other allele. The characteristic clinical features of the(More)
Survival rates for patients with medulloblastoma have improved in the last decades but for those who relapse outcome is dismal and new approaches are needed.
