Abstract Recent improvements in video imaging and instrumentation have encouraged a wider use of endoscopic surgery as a modality for diagnostic and operative procedures. To asses the utility and diagnostic accuracy of endoscopic surgery in children with oncological diseases, we reviewed our experience about thirty-eight patients affected by oncological diseases, referred to our Department since 1995. We performed laparoscopy in 22 cases, thoracoscopy in 14, 1 combinated procedure (laparoscopy + thoracoscopy) and retroperitoneoscopy in 1 case. Endoscopic surgery is indicated in cases of paediatric oncological diseases both for diagnosis and treatment.
