About this book

Because they raise both endocrine and neuro-oncological issues, pituitary tumors require the coordinated expertise of the clinical endocrinologist, the neuroradiologist, the neurosurgeon, the neuropathologist, and the radiation therapist. In Diagnosis and Management of Pituitary Tumors, eminent clinicians and specialists thoroughly review in great detail every aspect of this unique class of neoplasms. The historical, anatomical, physiological, epidemiological, pathophysiological, pathological, and experimental background is fully explored, and the topics covered include prolactinomas, somatotroph adenomas, corticotroph adenomas, thyrotroph adenomas, nonfunctioning tumors, pituitary tumors, invasive adenomas, pituitary carcinomas, as well as those lesions, exclusive of pituitary adenomas, that occur in the sellar region. Also discussed are new methods in endocrine diagnosis, high resolution imaging, receptor-mediated pharmacotherapy, microsurgical techniques, improved methods of radiation delivery, and the development of a precise and physiologically meaningful classification of pituitary tumors.
Much-needed and brilliantly multidisciplinary, Diagnosis and Management of Pituitary Tumors offers all those dealing with pituitary cancer patients today's most comprehensive guide to diagnosis and treatment, one whose coordinated treatment strategies have already sharply improved long-term survival rates for many patients.

Reviews

"This is a monumental book, written by eminent specialists and which describes in detail with many excellent illustrations all types of pituitary tumors. It is a multidisciplinary compilation of the latest data covering the epidemiology, genetics, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and therapy of each kind of known types of pituitary tumors. Each of the 25 chapters has a rich reference list. Lavishly illustrated, including histological photographs, and educational schemes, with excellent technical production. It is a pleasure to consult this comprehensive text....This book should be in all hospital libraries and beyond. Of interest to endocrinologists, pathologists, oncologists, neurosurgeons, radiotherapists and geneticists." - Journal of Endocrine Genetics
