Abstract: Despite advances in the treatment of pediatric cancers during the past few decades, high-risk neuroblastoma, alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, and hepatoblastomas with 3 or 4 sector involvement after chemotherapy continue to present significant challenges. This review summarizes recent research on the management of these diseases, with a special focus on the use of surgical debulking, genetic analysis, immunotherapy, and chemotherapy in improving outcomes of patients with these solid tumors. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
