Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This is an update of a 2004 compendium of childhood central nervous systems tumors with standard, current information on the diagnosis and treatment of these malignancies. . The book is sufficiently detailed to be valuable to experts in the field, but it also will appeal to anyone caring for children afflicted with these tumors as a general reference. . It is quite well done, complete, and easy to read. It is a valuable addition to the current books on childhood neurosurgery care." (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Review Service, March, 2010)
