Pediatric sarcomas are a diverse group of diagnoses. The three most common types that involve radiation therapy for local control are Ewing sarcoma (EWS), rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), and non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcoma (NRSTS). In this chapter, we will discuss the treatment of EWS and RMS which are predominantly seen in the pediatric and young adult population.
