New York/Stuttgart – Tumors of the Pediatric Central Nervous System, Second Edition, recently published by Thieme, provides readers with both medical management and surgical perspectives on the clinical, pathological, and radiological diagnoses and treatment of pediatric central nervous system tumors. Over 3,000 new cases of childhood primary brain tumors are expected to be diagnosed in the U.S. this year, and the five-year survival rate for children diagnosed with malignant brain tumors is only 32% ,with 4 out of 10 children dying of their disease within three years of diagnosis. This new edition includes complete coverage of the latest diagnostic and management techniques, state-of-the-art technologies, and trends in the surgical treatment of pediatric tumors.
Praise forthe first edition:
"A superb overview...each chapter is well written and concise...provides a succinct summary of the clinical, radiological, and pathological features of each tumor...a useful reference for the treatment of pediatric central nervous system tumors." -- Journal of Neurosurgery
Neurosurgeons, pediatric and radiation oncologists, and pediatricians caring for patients with tumors of the central nervous system will find this book to be an essential resource that they will repeatedly consult as they strive to enhance patient care.
