Synopsis:

This essential handbook provides detailed coverage of the diagnosis, clinical management, after care and monitoring, and underlying biology of brain and spinal tumors in children. International in approach, it draws on the experience of the European Childhood Brain Tumour Committee, linked to the International Society of Paediatric Oncology, and various multi-centre clinical trials to reflect the various approaches to management that have arisen around the world. The new edition expands on the research and advances in the field, updating all chapters significantly and adding a number of chapters, including Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (ATRT), Information needs for families and patients and Chronic plexus tumors. Since the first edition the understanding of the impact of biological parameters on diagnosis and outcome has advanced considerably. In recognition of this, the authorship of each of the disease-specific chapters includes a contribution on biology.
