Abstract

In this article the difficulties that face survivors of childhood cancer therapy are presented, and the late effects of such therapy, separated into nonmalignant and malignant late effects, are discussed according to organ system. Recommendations for monitoring the late effects are set forth. A table listing radiation-therapy site and chemotherapeutic agents and selected late effects that result from their use is provided. Finally, a brief recommendation regarding the establishment of a late-effects clinic is also presented.
