Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gubert L. Tan, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This second edition is part of the international review series of child neurology focusing on the current principles in the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors in children.
Purpose: The main purpose is to keep the readers up-to-date in dealing with brain tumors in the pediatric age group.
Audience: The target audience includes all health care professionals, from the epidemiologist to the pediatric oncologist caring for this group of patients.
Features: The overall quality of the book is good, and the tables and radiologic images were well chosen. It would enhance the text if the pathologic specimens and slides were in color. The chapters were concise and easy to read. Most of them end with either a short summary, conclusion, or future directions.
Assessment: With all the new advances in the molecular genetics of brain tumors paired with the recent experience of the experts in the management of brain tumors in children, the basic principles in diagnosis and treatment should constantly be updated. This book served that goal. For those health care professionals who would like to keep themselves abreast from the diagnosis to the complications of management of brain tumors in children, this is the book.
