Overview

This 6th edition represents a comprehensive review of the pathology and biology of tumours which affect the nervous system. Substantially enlarged and wholly revised to reflect the remarkable progress in the field, this book will serve as an encylopaedic guide to the growth of brain tumours for both practising and training neuropathologists.

Most significantly, this edition now features eight new chapters on basic aspects of brain tumour genetics, epidemiology, growth factors, invasion and metastasis, neurocarcinogens, and cellular and molecular immunology. The diagnostic aspects of central nervous system tumours have been completely updated with three new chapters on cerebrospinal fluid cytopathology, flow cytometry and DNA ploidy analysis and immunohistochemistry, and complete revisions of the chapters on parasellar neoplasms and peripheral nervous system neoplasms.

Now in two volumes, the text has also been expanded to incorporate recent advances in the understanding of factors involved in the genesis and progression of primary malignant tumors, in neuroimaging, and in tumour classifications (including the recently revised WHO classification system) with emphasis placed on those factors identified with prognostic significance.

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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Augusto Julio Martinez, MD (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center)
Description: The first edition of this encyclopedic textbook was published about 40 years ago by the late Drs. Rubinstein and Russell as a single volume with 309 pages. Since that time, it has remained an authoritative text on nervous system tumors and will continue to be the standard to which all neuro-oncology texts are compared. This sixth edition has grown to two volumes with 1472 pages and 23 chapters written by 27 contributors and is extremely well done and edited by eminently qualified neuropathologists.
Purpose: This edition has extensive coverage of new techniques of diagnostic molecular biology, cellular immunology, immunoperoxidase, flow-cytometry with DNA ploidy measurements and cytology of CSF. The incidence and epidemiology of brain tumors, molecular genetics and cytogenetics, DNA damage and repair, experimental CNS tumors, immunology, and pituitary and other neoplasms of the sellar region, are new chapters.
Audience: Practicing neuropathologists, neuro-oncologists, attending neurosurgeons, clinical neurologists, and residents and fellows in neurosurgery, pathology, and neurology, will be pleased to have this book available.
Features: The text is easy to follow and pleasant to read, covering all areas of neuro-oncology, including newly described lesions with problematic diagnosis, controversial cytogenesis, and diverse terminology. It is comprehensive, with an extensive bibliography. The most recent references are from 1995, but this does not impair its usefulness. The illustrations are beautiful and well chosen, representing the majority of neoplasms described in the text. Many are in color and there are several useful tables. The histopathological descriptions are clear and extremely well done. However, the differential diagnostic issues as well as the prognostic survival date with clinico-pathological correlations are not extensively discussed.
Assessment: This edition, in general, has retained the original format and design, continuing the scholarship of the first five editions. There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the great texts on neuro-oncology. When compared with the recently published Pathology and Genetics of Tumors of the Nervous System (International Agency for Research on Cancer 1997) by P. Kleihues and W.K. Cavenee, I would like to say that they complement each other, forming ideal and indispensable companions. I recommend this text with genuine enthusiasm and without reservations, and I think that every neuropathology/neurosurgery/neurology library should have its own copy to be used frequently.

Journal of the American Medical Association
Readers will glimpse Rubinstein's touch throughout the book, and with a new, updated edition so totally different in style and content, one can't help but reminisce about the old. Nevertheless, the editors must be congratulated for the enormous achievement of filling the shoes of the original editors. They have maintained or improved the highly regarded textbook of Russell and Rubinstein. I firmly believe that the sixth edition will follow previous editions in remaining the major reference book of neuropathology. Russell and Rubinstein's Pathology of Tumors of the Nervous System is recommended for medical libraries and the personal libraries of neurologists, neurosurgeons, pathologists, and neuropathologists.
