The material for present study is obtained from FNAC in cytology and biopsy specimen in histology department of RNT Medical college, Udaipur. Result: A total number 60 cases of malignant solid pediatric tumors of age group 0-18 years were diagnosed in Department of Pathology RNT Medical college Udaipur, during a period of two years. The number of malignancies diagnosed by Cytology accounted for 53.33% while Histopathology contributed 46.67% respectively. The male: Female ratio of childhood solid malignancies was 1.73:1. In malignant solid pediatric tumors CNS tumors were the commonest constituting 30% followed by Lymphoma 23.33%, Bone tumors 11.67% and neuroblastoma, retinoblastoma & spindle cell neoplasm 3.33% each.Conclusion: Our study concluded that solid malignant pediatric tumors contribute also a health problem in Udaipur region affecting all pediatric age group but more prevalent in the age group 6-10 years & 15-18 years.
