Pediatric cancers

  • Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia
    Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) is a serious chronic leukemia (cancer of the blood) that affects children mostly aged 4 and younger.
  • Hepatoblastoma
    Hepatoblastoma is an uncommon malignant liver cancer occurring in infants and children and composed of tissue resembling fetal liver cells, mature liver cells, or bile duct cells.
  • Pleuropulmonary blastoma
    Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare cancer originating in the lung or pleural cavity.
  • Juvenile polyposis syndrome
    Juvenile polyposis syndrome is a syndrome characterized by the appearance of multiple juvenile polyps in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Teratoma
    A teratoma is a tumor with tissue or organ components resembling normal derivatives of more than one germ layer.
  • Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor
    Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is a rare tumor usually diagnosed in childhood.
  • Endodermal sinus tumor
    Endodermal sinus tumor (EST), also known as yolk sac tumor (YST), is a member of the germ cell tumor group of cancers.
  • Granulosa cell tumour
    Granulosa cell tumours (or granulosa-theca cell tumours) are tumours that arise from granulosa cells.
  • Sarcoma botryoides
    Sarcoma botryoides or botryoid sarcoma or botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma is a subtype of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, that can be observed in the walls of hollow, mucosa lined structures such as the nasopharynx, common bile duct, urinary bladder of infants and young children or the vagina in females, typically younger than age 8.
  • Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma
    Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FHCC) is a rare form of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) that typically affects young adults and is characterized, under the microscope, by laminated fibrous layers interspersed between the tumour cells.
  • Carcinoid
    Carcinoid (also carcinoid tumor) is a slow-growing type of neuroendocrine tumor originating in the cells of the neuroendocrine system.
  • Sacrococcygeal teratoma
    Sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) is a type of tumor known as a teratoma that develops at the base of the coccyx (tailbone) and is thought to be derived from the primitive streak.
