Resumen

FERNANDEZ, Alejandra et al. Cáncer Bucomaxilofacial en Niños III: Tumores Malignos del Tejido Blando. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.4, pp.387-392. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2017000400387.

Head and neck malignant tumors in pediatric patients comprise carcinoma, sarcoma, melanoma and tumours of uncertain differentiation. Within the pediatric population, the most prevalent neoplasm is rhabdomyosarcoma, followed by squamous cell carcinoma. There is a wide range in the presentation, and it varies significantly with age groups of 2-6 and 15-19 year-olds who present the higher incidence rates. For this reason, it has been suggested that the etiology of head and neck neoplasms remains unclear. Treating these pathologies usually involves a multimodal approach that combines surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Prognosis and survival rates depend mainly of the stage at the time of diagnosis. Early diagnosis and treatment can improve prognosis and survival rates. In this 3rd part of "Maxillofacial Cancer in Pediatric Patients", we studied a variety of malignant tumors in head and neck soft tissue from a paediatric sample. Specifically, we aim to analyze their etiology, epidemiology, treatment and prognosis.
