Reviews

From the reviews:

"This slim book contains nearly everything a practicing oncologist needs to know about the pathogenesis, diagnosis, therapy, and delayed complications of pediatric lymphomas. … Overall, this book is an exceptional, highly accessible resource for oncologists or anyone caring for children and adolescents who are receiving treatment for lymphoma or are in long-term follow-up. … The general principles and the specific pearls, tables, and figures are illuminating and helpful for all who are interested in understanding pediatric lymphomas." (Leslie S. Kersun and Beverly J. Lange, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2007)

"This book covers the epidemiology, pathology, molecular biology, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas in children and adolescents. … it is written at a level most appropriate for pediatric oncologists and perhaps, hematopathologists. … it might be added to libraries as a reference for pediatricians in-training to use when they manage these patients. … The quality of this book is excellent … . It will be an important quick read for pediatric oncologists to prepare for their boards or recertification." (Russell Steele, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2007)

"This is a multicenter treatise reviewing updated knowledge on the genetics, diagnosis, treatment and sequelae of lymphomas in childhood. The book is divided into 12 chapters … . Clearly written, with many illustrations and tables in color, and extensive references after each chapter. For pediatric oncologists and general pediatricians." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 5 (3), March, 2008)
