Overview

Thoroughly revised to reflect the latest advances in neurosurgery, radiation oncology, chemotherapy, biological therapy, and the basic sciences, the Second Edition of this highly acclaimed volume is the most comprehensive, current reference on tumors of the central and peripheral nervous system. More than 100 of the foremost authorities present multimodality treatment strategies for specific tumor types and examine the mechanisms of tumorigenesis.

Coverage includes state-of-the-art information on image-guided surgery, local delivery systems, intraoperative imaging, proton beam therapy, conformal systems, radiosurgery, new drugs and biological agents, and cell cycle deregulation and chromosomal abnormalities in tumorigenesis. This edition contains over 400 illustrations.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mukesh Misra, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book aims to provide a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment of the benign and malignant tumors of the central and peripheral nervous system.
Purpose: The purpose is to outline and understand the principles of the molecular and cellular events that lead to tumor development and progression. This book is an effort to improve the understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of tumors in the central nervous system.
Audience: The book has been primarily targeted to physicians and scientists working for a better understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of these tumors.
Features: Tumors of the nervous system result in a great deal of disabling effects, and there has been limited scientific work done in this field. This book has been divided into five sections that deal with the diagnosis and treatment of these tumors: basic principles of diagnosis and treatment; specific types of benign tumors; specific types of malignant tumors; the metastatic diseases of the nervous system; the molecular basis and the basic scientific developments in tumors of the nervous system.
Assessment: The book is an important and excellent compilation of the recent developments in this field. The information contained in this book is invaluable.

A comprehensive approach to benign and malignant tumors of the central and peripheral nervous system, including principles of the molecular and cellular events that lead to tumor development and progression. It begins with principles of treatment, including traditional and emerging techniques of surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and novel biologic therapies (including gene transfer). Chapters on psychiatric issues reflect increasing concern for understanding the psychosocial aspects of central nervous system tumors. A section of color plates includes MRI, PET and SPECT images, superimposed SPECT/MRI and MRI/Tc- HMPAO scans, and stained, magnified photos of tumor cells.
