abstract

  • Thrombosis is a significant problem in patients with cancer. The impact of thromboembolism in association with childhood cancer is not clearly defined. Similarly the information of prevention and management of thromboembolic events in children receiving cancer-therapy is limited. This review aims to examine current knowledge regarding the epidemiology, pathophysiology and management of thrombosis in association with cancer in children.
