Overview

This is the leading international professional reference text that also serves as a bench book, describing all aspects of the pathology of brain tumours- genetics, molecular biology, epidemiology, morphology, immunohistochemistry, diagnostic criteria and prognosis. Beautifully illustrated in colour throughout and comprehensively referenced,Russell & Rubinstein is regarded as the ultimate source for key information.

For this seventh edition the book returns to a single, clearly organized volume, and basic sciences are once again fully integrated within sectinos devoted to individual tumour entities. Entirely revised and updated throughout by a wide range of internationally revered authorities, the content reflects the latest tumour classificiation and grading while neuroradiologic correlation via state of the art neuroimaging techniques continues to be emphasised in all diagnostic entities. The offering is completed by a companion CD-ROM, providing quick and easy access to all the images from the book, indexed and retrievable by figure number, chapter title, and keyword searches.
