Lymphoma, Supratentorial Tumors, Glioneuronal Tumors, Gangliogliomas, Neuroblastoma in Adults, Astrocytomas, Ependymomas, Hemangiomas, and Craniopharyngiomas

  • M.A. Hayat
  • This volume was written by 68 contributors representing 17 countries. The advantage of involving more than one author is to present different points of view on a specific controversial aspect of the CNS cancer

  • The contents of the volume are divided into nine subheadings: Lymphoma, Supratentorial Tumors, Glioneuronal Tumors, Gangliogliomas, Neuroblastoma in Adults, Astrocytoma and Ependymoma, Hemangiomas, Craniopharyngiomas, and Neurogenesis for the convenience of the reader

About this book

Introduction

The ninth volume in this essential series discusses key advances in our understanding of neoplasms in the human central nervous system. This publication deals with various aspects of nine separate types of brain tumors. With 70 contributors from 17 nations, this edition offers an unrivalled thoroughness and breadth of coverage that includes the very latest research results on the following tumor types: astrocytoma, lymphoma, supratentorial and glioneuronal tumors, gangliogliomas, neuroblastoma in adults, hemangioma, and ependymoma.

 

The content introduces new technologies and their applications in diagnosis, treatment and therapy of tumors. It explains molecular profiling techniques that enable oncologists to select appropriate therapies for clinical trials, and discusses a number of surgical treatments, including resection and radiosurgery. Volume 9 is interspersed with color illustrations and tables depicting many of the results. This volume joins its fellow publications in a valuable series that fully explores controversies and debates in CNS cancer therapy, and furthers the scientific quest for effective therapies to combat cancer in all its forms.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This text covers all aspects of histology, pathology, surgery, chemotherapy, radiosurgery of deep tumors and hypothalamic-pituitary lesions. … I recommend this book for neurosurgeons and pathologists.” (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2014)
