Whereas the impact of multimodal therapy including radiotherapy and chemotherapy is major in tooth development defects1 we suggested that the particular association between neuroblastoma and the occurrence of missing teeth is not necessary due to treatment effects but considered the hypothesis of a common underlying genetic defect because of common cell origin...
