Summary of "Health behaviors and disordered eating in adolescents and young adults with spina bifida: results from a national survey."

Youth with disabilities are at higher risk for obesity, disordered eating, and poor body image but are often excluded from research on these domains. The current study is the first to characterize health behaviors, body mass index, and disordered eating cognitions and behaviors in a national sample of adolescent and young adult males and females with spina bifida.

It is divided into four distinct types: pleomorphic, predominantly in male adults; alveolar (RHABDOMYOSARCOMA, ALVEOLAR), mainly in adolescents and young adults; embryonal (RHABDOMYOSARCOMA, EMBRYONAL), predominantly in infants and children; and botryoidal, also in young children. It is one of the most frequently occurring soft tissue sarcomas and the most common in children under 15.
