About Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumors

Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is a deadly tumor typically diagnosed in young children. AT/RT most commonly presents as a brain tumor, but can occur elsewhere in the central nervous system including the spinal cord.

 

AT/RT is resistant to current treatments so new treatments are needed & funding is very scarce. Join us in this fight.

 

AT/RT is highly malignant and thus has a high mortality rate. The age of the child at diagnosis has a significant correlation to survival rates. Children over three have seen survival rates in the 70-80% range. Unfortunately, for children under three, that rate falls to 10%. Because most children diagnosed with AT/RT are under three, the overall survival rate has historically been very low.

 

There currently is no known cure for AT/RT. However, there have been dramatic improvements in treatments recently and there is increased optimism that these new treatments will soon lead to significantly higher survival rates.
