This single-source reference combines and distils the information that has been generated in recent years on brain tumours in children and adults. It examines advances in understanding their molecular biology, modes of growth and spread, diagnosis and treatment. Allowing both general physicians and specialists to keep abreast of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, Brain Tumors covers all aspects of modern-day care, including discussions of: the epidemiology, pathology and clinical presentation of specific types of brain tumours such as malignant glioma, meningioma and pituitary adenoma; all state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures; pre- and post-operative care; standard and stereotactic surgical approaches; skull base surgery; traditional and innovative approaches to radiation therapy; chemotherapy and immunotherapy; and stereotactic radiosurgery.;Written by experts in the field, this book is intended for neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropathologists, neuroradiologists, radiation and medical oncologists, paediatricians, internists and family practitioners who care for patients with brain tumours, and residents in these disciplines.
