A section on molecular pathology and electron microscopy is also included for each tumor category; along with a list of classic reviews and innovative articles on each of the tumor entities as suggested reading at the end of each chapter. Created to fill a void in the practice of pediatric neuropathology, this practical and well-illustrated Atlas of Pediatric Brain Tumors represents a collection of interesting, common and unusual tumors for a diagnostic exercise by the reader.
