About this book


“The editors…have done an outstanding job of presenting…complex information in a lucid manner – this book is a must-read for the global community of aspiring students and neuro-oncology practitioners.”   Amar Gajjar, MD in the Foreword


This is a succinct introduction to pediatric neuro-oncology.  It summarizes the key advances in molecular biology that have helped transform this rapidly evolving field and provides up-to-date coverage of major and emerging treatment modalities as well as supportive care.  Separate chapters present each kind of pediatric brain cancer and its diagnosis and treatment.   As more children survive brain cancer, the importance of quality of life issues and helping survivors to cope with the neuropsychological impact and long-term effects of current therapies has come into sharper focus; these topics are also addressed in the book, as are palliative care and pediatric neuro-oncology in countries with limited resources.  The book is aimed at trainees and practitioners who seek an up-to-date text in pediatric neuro-oncology that is both comprehensive and concise.
