  Abstract:
  The first publication about surgical treatment of tumors in children in medical literature dates from the beginning of the 19th century. Operations were a method of choice to treat. New development in science such as microscopy research, anesthesia, antisepsis, X-ray, and radium therapy has changed the approach to malignant diseases. The remarkable achievements in survival of oncology patients today are the results of a multimodal, multi-institutional, and multidisciplinarycollaboration. Pediatric oncology differs from the oncology for adult patients in the type, generic considerations, diagnostics, and treatment approach. Many pediatric subspecialties are required to evaluate, treat, and manage children with malignant diseases, including provision of primary modalities and multiple supportive care services.
