Childhood cancer in adults outlines the uncommon challenge presented by the occurrence of these pathologies in young adults, and the need for shared expertise in their successful management. The embryonal tumours, medulloblastoma, retinoblastoma, neuroblastoma, and Wilms’ tumour are considered first, emphasising similarities and differences in the pathology and management of each when adults are compared with children. The soft tissue sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, is frequently best managed with chemotherapy and surgery. The important role of specialist cytogenetics in all these tumours is emphasised.
