The field of liver tumors in children has seen tremendous therapeutic advances over recent years. This has been achieved through a much better understanding of the biology of disease, improved diagnostic procedures, refined methods of pretreatment tumor staging, the implementation of highly efficient chemotherapy and surgery, detailed monitoring of toxicity, and careful follow-up strategies. International controlled trials have played a key role in these advances, and many leading figures in the trials are among the editors and authors of this book.

All aspects of an impressive success story are covered, disclosing how the outcome of a previously devastating disease has been so dramatically improved. This book will prove essential reading for all who are involved in the care of children with liver tumors. Arthur Zimmermann graduated in Medicine at the University of Berne, Switzerland.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This slender but tightly packed book is essentially a report on the current status of surgical and chemotherapeutic treatment of childhood liver tumors, based on the most current data from the American and European collaborative treatment groups. . Pediatric surgeons working in specialized tumor surgery settings, with the Children's Oncology Group, or who support research activities in liver tumors will find this book invaluable. . It will stand as a thorough and quick reference in the topic as currently understood, diagnosed, and treated." (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Review Services, September, 2011)
