About this book


Cancer is still a relatively rare disease in children. Nevertheless, physicians must have a general knowledge of the possible aetiology, symptoms, treatment, complications and outcome of cancer in their young patients. This book gives just the information that physicians are looking for in a clear presentation of the practical problems in pediatric oncology. The third edition of Cancer in Children has been completely updated. It shows how today's fast-moving research is alreadyimproving our understanding of oncogenesis and can be used in newer treatment techniques such as genetic manipulation in children. Other new information regarding epidemiology, radiotherapy, drug treatment and even bone marrow transplantation is all condensed into an excellent overview. The pediatric oncologist can easily bring his knowledge of the field up to date with this book; the pediatrician and general practitioner will discover the quick source of information he needs on this specialized topic. A gem for every physicians!
