Second malignant neoplasms: an increasingly recognized complication of childhood cancer.
Med J Malaysia. 1997 Jun; 52(2):174-7.MJ

Abstract

Second malignant neoplasms (SMN) are an increasingly recognized late complication seen in childhood cancer survivors. A total of 3 cases of SMN have been found in the Department of Paediatrics, University Hospital Kuala Lumpur after a 15-year experience of treating childhood malignancies. Two cases are described here. The first developed abdominal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma 3 years after undergoing an allogeneic bone marrow transplant for second relapse of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, while the second child developed myeloid leukaemia two years after completing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Progress in the management of childhood cancer in Malaysia and the availability of bone marrow transplantation facilities have increased the number of childhood cancer survivors; leading to increased incidence of SMN.
