This chapter surveys the entire spectrum of tumours that are described in the fetus, infant and child. The commoner tumours (rhabdomyoma, fibroma, teratoma, myxoma) are discussed in detail, but there is also extensive discussion of rarer tumours such as fatty tumours and vascular tumours and even rarer entities such as juvenile xanthogranuloma or inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour. A brief section is devoted to primary malignant tumours of the heart and to metastatic tumours. Finally, there is discussion of pseudoneoplasms that may be seen in children.
