About this book

In the past five years, remarkable advances in fetal surgery and imaging techniques, such as ultrasound and "fast" MRI, have occurred, resulting in increased numbers of antenatal tumor diagnoses even on "routine" prenatal examinations. Tumors of the Fetus and Infant presents an up-to-date account of the clinical and pathological features of neoplastic disease and tumor-like conditions in the fetus and neonate and discusses major tumor studies and cases from throughout the world. Each chapter reviews the incidence, clinical findings, cytogenetics, pathology, radiology, treatment and prognosis. Numerous summary tables make treatment and survival rates easy to consult and over 3,000 references direct the reader to the best current and classic sources. While the book is addressed primarily to pathologists, clinicians, residents, and students may also find it beneficial in obtaining a clear understanding of tumors, reaching an accurate diagnosis and initiating the most appropriate therapy. More than 400 illustrations accompany the text.
