Abstract

Endocrinopathies are significant consequences of childhood cancers and their treatments. The risk of developing these adverse events is related to the underlying disease and its treatment with cytotoxic drugs and radiation therapy. This article will explore the current literature about endocrine late effects of hypothalamic-pituitary, thyroid, and gonadal dysfunction, as well as osteoporosis and obesity.
