    Fifty one neonatal tumours were diagnosed in Glasgow over a 32 year period. The most common tumours were teratomas (n=19), others being renal tumours (n=9), soft tissue sarcomas (n=8), neuroblastomas (n=7), and others (n=8). Of the total, 31% were malignant. Neonatal tumours pose difficult problems of management, and because of their comparative rarity and the great potential for cure we recommend that all centres dealing with such patients should contribute to and benefit from a Neonatal Tumour Registry.
