The pediatric oncologists and hematologists have long been suggesting to the German Childhood Cancer Registry to extend recording new cases systematically
not only for cases before the 15th birthday, but also before the 18th birthday.
Since the „Vereinbarung des Gemeinsamen Bundesausschusses (GBA)“ issued in 2006 we were able to officially extend the recording to cases under 18 in 2010. The starting phase went well, so relative completeness was reached even earlier.
In this annual report 2013/14 we are now able to present analyses for cases aged 15-17 over a period of 5 years for the first time.
