In brief: Chemo and surgery

Current therapy involves a combination of intensive chemotherapy and surgery to remove the tumor. Chemotherapy agents used initially may include doxorubicin, cisplatin, high dose methotrexate, etoposide, and ifosfamide.
Cycles of chemotherapy may be given first to improve surgical outcome. Additional chemotherapy is needed after resection.
