The sequelae of treatment modalities used to treat childhood cancer are of increasing clinical importance. In children with pediatric malignancies, the full impact of such sequelae may not be apparent until years after treatment. The earlier recognition of these neurotoxicities could possibly alter the course of a treatment or facilitate interventions to improve quality of life.
