Treatment Approach and Outcomes in Infants with Localized Rhabdomyosarcoma: A Report from the Soft Tissue Sarcoma Committee of the Children's Oncology Group

IJROBP Journal SA-CME activity for January 1, 2019 (Volume 103, Issue 1) is designed to help predict potential outcomes for infants that do not receive standard radiotherapy per protocol.

Substantial concern exists for using local radiotherapy for children < 24 months old due to the risk of late effects from this therapy.  In order to improve enrollment, the ARST0331 and ARST0531 allowed individualization of therapy for these patients enrolled on the trial and in many cases radiotherapy was omitted or delayed.  The value of radiotherapy may not be well known for this group of patients particularly in light of a complete response to chemotherapy.  This report and this CME activity seek to highlight any differences in outcome with individualized therapy for these patients to guide the participant’s practice.
