About this book

Treatment of retinoblastoma has evolved at a significant speed over the last two decades; ocular salvage approaches are now at the core of modern treatments, and assessment of visual and functional outcomes has become a priority. New discoveries in retinoblastoma biology are leading the way to the development of targeted therapies that could revolutionize our current approaches to the treatment. In this book, experts address all the important aspects of research and therapy - from biology to epidemiology to treatment. Retinoblastoma will provide a single source for the diagnosis and care of children with this malignancy.

From the reviews:

“This thorough reference, although it covers nearly every imaginable aspect of retinoblastoma, is … a concise and easy read. … this book is a wonderful introduction to retinoblastoma for physicians in training. The authors have successfully achieved their goal of compiling a comprehensive book addressing the history, diagnosis, treatment, and future research in this field. … This is a valuable addition to the literature, providing as it does a single resource that addresses the complexities of treating retinoblastoma.” (Christina H. Choe, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2010)
