Abstract

Pediatric musculoskeletal tumors can arise in both bone and soft tissues. The overwhelming majority of these are benign; however, rarely, malignant neoplasms do occur. These are collectively termed sarcomas, indicating their mesenchymal origin. Sarcoma management requires careful adherence to the well-described tenets of tumor management. This article summarizes the basic principles and recent advances in the management of soft tissue and bone tumors.
