Introduction
  • The incidence of childhood cancer has been
    increasing since the last two decades. Leukemia
    and lymphoma are common in children under 15
    years old. Incidence of Acute Lymphoid Leukemia
    (ALL) has increased five fold from 1975 to 2002.
    The peak of incidence is in children between 2-6
    years of age and a little more in males as
    compared to females. Its incidence is more in
    whites and the high socioeconomic class. ALL
    occurs in Down syndrome, Bloom syndrome, ataxia
    telangectasia and Fanconis anemia. Acute myeloid
    leukemia (AML) comprises 11 of all childhood
    leukemias. Lymphoma is the third common cancer in
    childhood and comprises 16 of childhood cancers.
