[Correspondence] Late effects of childhood cancer

Nickhill Bhakta and colleagues1 (Dec 9, 2017, p 2569) report a large case-control study (St Jude Lifetime Cohort Study) of survivors of childhood cancer from a single institution in North America.1 The study defines the prevalence of many of the late effects of cancer in children and young people. However, we were disappointed to note the omission of two key areas, mental health and female fertility, limiting the ability to describe the report as a comprehensive description of the late morbidity burden associated with survival from childhood cancer.
