Solid Malignant Tumors of Infancy and Childhood: A Histopathological Study

  title={Solid Malignant Tumors of Infancy and Childhood: A Histopathological Study},
  author={Chandrashekhar Thotadamane Nagaraja and Ravindra B. Patil and Geethalakshmi Ugrappa and R Krishnamurthy},
In general, the features of malignancies in children differ biologically and histologically from those of adults with respect to incidence, type of tumor, underlying familial or genetic aberration and Tendency to regress spontaneously or cytodifferantiate. In recent years, identification of specific genes, oncogenes, tumor markers and other biological and pathological factors have played an important role in staging and classifying risk categorization of specific tumors as low, intermediate and… Expand
