Description The specifics of childhood tumours have over time necessitated an age-specific classification in order to reliably and reproducibly describe and analyze the process and outcomes of childhood cancer treatment. Moreover, the advances in understanding the biology of tumours in children and young adults has brought about the need for further related changes to classification methods, which are currently probably best-reflected in the international standards of the ICCC (International Classification for Childhood Cancer) [1]. As is the case with adults, there has been a statutory requirement in force since 1951 [2] to report any new occurrence of paediatric oncological disease to the National Cancer Registry (NCR), using the ICD-O (International Classification of Diseases for Oncology).
