  • Review benign and malignant tumors that are seen more often in the pediatric population, including fibromas, leukemia, Ewing sarcoma, mucosal neuromas associated with type II multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome, and more. 
  • Familiarize themselves with the clinical and radiographic presentations of each pathological entity discussed.
