Abstract

Although pediatric tumors are largely sporadic in cause, continued advancements in science have elucidated a growing body of tumors that are associated with syndromes. Early identification of these syndromic disorders associated with developing tumors can alter the course of disease and potentially save lives. Medical imaging has a pivotal role in screening surveillance, diagnosis, and management of these tumors. Understanding characteristic manifestations of these syndromes is important to optimize image utilization. This article discusses clinically important syndromes associated with pediatric tumors with brief overview of the background, genetics, and clinical features. Diagnosis, imaging, management, and treatment are also reviewed.
