About this book

The critical role of the thymus in the immune system is becoming increasingly well understood. Much of this knowledge is widely dispersed throughout the literature.  Although thymectomy is well established as a surgical procedure, these advances need to be made available to the surgeon. Furthermore,  neurologists and physicians require a better understanding of the surgical aspects of the thymus. This book, written by selected experts, provides an up-to-date and concise review of the thymus gland  for both the surgeon and the physician.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This concise review of the pathobiology of the thymus gland emphasizes the surgical management of diseases of the thymus. … This book is a worthwhile addition to any thoracic surgeon’s library. The issues addressed in this textbook are most pertinent to thoracic surgeons involved in the care of patients with thymic diseases. … The book is noteworthy for being concise – it is just over 100 pages in length – and it is easy to read, up-to-date, and relevant." (Nirmala K Veerachaneni, Doody's Review Service, September, 2007)
