About this book

Pediatric CNS Tumors is a detailed review of childhood brain tumors with a particular emphasis on providing treatment algorithms for each tumor type. Controversies and current therapeutic agents under development are also discussed. The second edition includes expanded chapters on embryonal tumors, rare tumor types, and supportive care for patients with brain tumors.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition: “This is an update of a 2004 compendium of childhood central nervous systems tumors with standard, current information on the diagnosis and treatment of these malignancies. … The book is sufficiently detailed to be valuable to experts in the field, but it also will appeal to anyone caring for children afflicted with these tumors as a general reference. … It is quite well done, complete, and easy to read. It is a valuable addition to the current books on childhood neurosurgery care.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2010)
