Only PRINCIPLES OF NEURO-ONCOLOGY provides comprehensive coverage of diagnosis and treatment of all primary and metastatic tumors of the nervous system. Offering streamlined access to sophisticated imaging studies that aid in diagnosis, and to management guidelines for treatment, the text assists those physicians who care for the growing numbers of patients with nervous system malignancies. PRINCIPLES OF NEURO-ONCOLOGY provides:

• A logical synthesis of clinical strategies and the basic science and molecular principles underlying these diseases

• In-depth coverage of all major tumors of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves

• The most comprehensive coverage of radiation therapies for nervous system tumors of any source

• Ready access to dosages and preferred combinations of chemotherapeutic drugs

• 500 diagnostic images; over 100 in full color

• Thorough introduction to presentations and neuroimaging

• Epidemiology, genetic and molecular underpinnings, and neuropathology

• Clinical strategies for complications of cancer, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment

• Information on patient follow-up care

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Benatar, MD, PhD (Emory University School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides a detailed account of the basic principles that underpin neuro-oncology (tumor biology, neuropathology, imaging, treatment), a series of chapters devoted to individual tumors of the nervous system (affecting the brain and spinal cord, both primary and metastatic) as well as a section on paraneoplastic disorders and the adverse side effects of radiation and chemotherapeutic agents on neurologic function.
Purpose: Neuro-oncology is a discipline that spans neurology, neurosurgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, and general medicine. As such, individuals trained in any one of these disciplines are often not entirely comfortable with all aspects of the diagnosis and management of patients with tumors of the nervous system. The authors' goal is to provide a book that describes the current state of the field of neuro-oncology from a multidisciplinary perspective, an objective which they have met.
Audience: This book has been written for students of all levels, although I suspect it will be most helpful for individual specialists working as part of a multidisciplinary team to care for patients with tumors of the brain and spinal cord. As such it will be a useful addition to the libraries of neurologists, neurosurgeons, and oncologists.
Features: The range of material covered in this book is broad. Different chapters approach problems in neuro-oncology from varying perspectives. The first section contains chapters that deal with general topics pertinent to neuro-oncology including neuroimaging and neuropathology as well as the principles of surgical management, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. The second section is devoted to individual tumors of the brain and spinal cord. The final sections are devoted to metastatic disease, paraneoplasia, and the neurological side effects of chemo and radiation therapy. The book is well illustrated with a plethora of high quality MRI scans and numerous color plates illustrating aspects of the relevant neuropathology.
Assessment: This is not a book that can easily be read from cover to cover; instead it will serve as a very useful source of reference for all matters neuro-oncological. As such, the index is an extremely important component of the book. I was pleasantly surprised to find an entry for almost every topic I looked up. I am sure that this book will prove to be a very useful source of information as I encounter neuro-oncological problems in my clinical practice.
