About this book

Recent evidence indicates that the physiology and response to various drugs in the pediatric population differs from that of the adult and must be appreciated to be able to fully address the health needs of the pediatric population. Atlas of Pediatric Brain Tumors covers areas ranging from neuroimaging, the use of crush and touch preps during introperative consultation, classic histological features of brain tumors, tumor variants, and a miscellaneous group of challenging tumors. Chapters consist of essential diagnostic information and features highlighting recognized variants and their differential diagnoses. 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.

Reviews

From the reviews: “Based on the last WHO CNS tumor classification in 2007, this atlas of pediatric brain tumors also includes new lesions which have been accepted as established entities since then. … The book is intended to offer help to diagnostic pathologists … . it will also be very helpful for neurology, neurosurgery, and, obviously, pathology residents. … This atlas is a highly recommended companion … for anyone who is dealing with pediatric neuro-oncology. … The atlas format and the outline structure make the book uniquely valuable.” (Peter Pal Molnar, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2010)
