Oncology of CNS Tumors 3rd Edition

by Jörg-Christian Tonn

This book is an easy-to-use reference that provides ready guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the full range of tumors of the central nervous system in adults and children. The new edition has been completely revised to reflect the continually evolving landscape of neuro-oncology and provide readers with a thorough update that will inform their clinical practice. Since the previous edition, molecular neuropathology has progressed considerably, leading to a new understanding of specific clinical entities with corresponding changes in treatment concepts.  Moreover, tumor biology has become better integrated with clinical neuro-oncology in truly translational efforts. These advances receive detailed attention. In addition, the structure of the book has been adapted to align with the revised 2016 version of the WHO Brain Tumor Classification. Once again, the contributors have been carefully selected as leading experts in the field. Oncology of CNS Tumors is already established as a widely used reference, and this new edition will provide optimal value for highly specialized comprehensive neuro-oncology centers as well as practicing clinicians and researchers.
