abstract

  • ON among long-term survivors of childhood cancer is rare. However, compared with siblings, childhood cancer survivors have a significantly increased relative rate of ON, particularly those who were older at diagnosis and who received dexamethasone or radiation therapy. Future studies are needed to better delineate our findings, particularly the increased risk after gonadal radiation.
