About this book

This richly illustrated book will help presurgically diagnose pediatric/young adult tumors. The content is divided into two parts. The first part shows step-by-step how to perform a small volume specimen such as fine needle aspiration/core needle biopsy and how to correlate the morphology with the clinical, radiological, and/or molecular information. In turn, the second part presents a comprehensive overview of the various tumor entities. The content represents diagnostic modalities from the major diagnostic centers worldwide, and is supplemented by the authors` 25 years of experience in diagnosing pediatric tumors. This book will successfully guide practitioners, researchers and oncology pediatricians through the process of sample harvesting and diagnosing.

Pediatric tumors represent a large variety of lesions including pseudotumors of inflammatory and non-inflammatory origin, various types of lympadenopathy, benign lesions, specific sarcomas, and blastemal malignancies. These age-specific and histotype-specific tumors of various origin, evolution and prognosis are often characteristic in morphological and molecular levels, making their diagnosis highly specialized.

In 2001, he completed his qualification in Oncology. As a visiting pathologist, Dr. Klijanienko worked at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, USA and at the Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, USA. From 1991-1992, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Texas, Anderson Cancer Center. Since 1992, Dr. Klijanienko has been working at the Clinic for Cytopathology and Pathology, Institute Curie, Paris, France. In 2011 he obtained a title of Associate Professor at ICMP in Łódź, Poland. Amongst others, he is a member of the European Society of Pathology, the American Association on Cancer Research and the International Academy of Cytology, and has authored two pathology books and more than 160 scientific publications.

 

Dr. Živa Pohar Marinšek graduated from the Medical Faculty in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where she also obtained her degree as a specialist in cytopathology in 1987. She completed her doctor`s degree in pathology in 2001. Since the beginning of her training in cytopathology, she has worked for the Department of Cytopathology, Institute of Oncology, Ljubljana. She served as the head of the department from 2005 until 2015, carrying on the tradition in cytopathology that was started at the Institute of Oncology in 1957. She was also the president of the Slovenian Society of Cytopathology for eight years and vice president of the organizing committee for the 24th European Congress of Cytology in 1979. She was a member of the Scientific Committee at the European Federation of Cytology Societies from 1996-1999. In addition to routine diagnostic work, she has also been involved in education at the graduate and postgraduate levels, as well as in research focused mainly on the cytology of childhood and soft tissue tumors. She has published over 15 articles on these two subjects as well as several articles on various other aspects of fine needle aspiration.  

Henryk Adam Domanski received his medical degree from the Medical University Wroclaw, Poland in 1982 and degree in anatomical pathology and cytology from the Medical Faculty Lund, Sweden in 1990. He completed his PhD degree in 2005 and became an Associate Professor of Pathology in 2009.
