A rare disease group: Dominant in pedatric age, cluster in genitourinary locations and head and neck, adjacent to meninges. Surgery to remove is best; chemotherapy is used when indicated, and radiotherapy only when benefit outstrips adverse effects to growing bones and muscles, so very age dependent.
