Chemoreceptor Neoplasia: Comparative Features in Laboratory Animals Domestic Animals, and Man

  • Bernard Sass
  • Howard M. HayesJr.
Part of the Cancer Growth and Progression book series (CAGP, volume 5)


The occurrence, epidemiology, gross, microscopic, and ultrastructural pathology of chemoreceptor neoplasms in laboratory animals, domestic animals and man are reviewed in this chapter. To understand better these aspects of chemoreceptor neoplasia, the normal gross, microscopic, and ultrastructural anatomy, and normal and abnormal physiology of this organ system are also discussed.
