Overall I found this an interesting collection of papers which well summarises the studies made in the treatment of children with cancer between the first and second symposia. It would be a worthwhile volume to have on the shelves of one's library and is relatively up to date despite the 2 year lag between meeting and publication.' Australian Cancer Society 16:2 1992
