Overview

The only text dealing exclusively with rare or infrequently encountered malignancies in adults and children

Now in its Fourth Edition, Textbook of Uncommon Cancer is designed to help clinicians manage the treatment of uncommon cancers, for which, in many instances, there are few established guidelines for care. No longer does each new presentation of an uncommon cancer require extended periods of research. This unique and well-established book provides balanced, authoritative, and now, wherever possible, evidence-based guidance on how to address each malignancy.

This Fourth Edition is thoroughly revised with new material as well as a new focus on evidence-based research and clinical practice throughout. Clinicians will find guidelines for dealing with management issues, gain insight into real-world clinical decision-making, and save themselves hours of painstaking research through the use of this widely acclaimed, comprehensive guide.

Features of this new edition include:

  • A complete revision and update, with five new chapters and extensive revisions of more than 75 percent of the existing chapters
  • Over 100 new full-color illustrations and images
  • Contributions by multidisciplinary teams of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other specialists, reflecting day-to-day decision-making and clinical practice

Textbook of Uncommon Cancer, Fourth Edition is an essential, self-contained guide for practicing oncologists who treat patients with rare or infrequently encountered malignancies. It is also an important resource for hematologists and other specialists who deal with malignancies in a particular organ system.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Rajat Malhotra
This textbook focuses on uncommon cancers that are rarely covered comprehensively in general oncology texts. The first edition was published in 1988. The purpose ""is to provide a resource on the presentation, pathology, natural history, and management of unusual cancers."" The book is welcomed by busy oncologists or trainees who spend endless hours researching numerous references on rare malignancies. The goal is comprehensively met in this textbook. It is targeted to practicing oncologists and trainees in oncology. It is written at a level that is appropriate for this audience. The editors and contributors are from numerous disciplines and cancer centers from the United States and abroad. Uncommon cancers and common tumors presenting in unusual manners are covered. The chapters can be thought of as comprehensive review articles for the respective rare cancers. The references at the end of each chapter reduce the need for time consuming literature searches on obscure topics. While some of the chapters are not as comprehensive as others, this relates to the relative scarcity of information on these rare tumors. While there is some duplication of information in several chapters, this book is meant to be used as a reference and not read cover to cover. This will be an important addition to most oncologists' libraries. The unique subject matter of this book will make it an often-used reference for the study and treatment of uncommon cancer.
Booknews
New edition of a text that discusses the pathology, natural history, and management of rare tumors. The editors (doctors representing major medical centers) present 63 papers that discuss genitourinary, head and neck, gynecological, and breast cancers; hematological, cutaneous, neurological, thoracic, and pediatric malignancies; and endocrine and gastrointestinal tumors. Generously illustrated with b&w images. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
