The Sixth Edition of this monumental reference--now 50% larger than its most recent predecessor from 1989--has been substantially enlarged and fully revised. It features new chapters on tumor genetics, epidemiology, growth factors, invasion and metastasis, neurocarcinogens, cellular and
molecular immunology, cerebrospinal fluid cytopathology, flow cytometry and DNA ploidy analysis, and immunohistochemistry. The neuroradiologic correlation has been emphasized in all diagnostic entities. Now in two volumes and with 400 full-color illustrations plus over 200 black-and-white
photographs, this state-of-the-art encyclopedia of tumor pathology and biology also incorporates recent advances in understanding the genesis and progression of primary malignant tumors, in neuroimaging, and in tumor classifications. A must-have reference for neuropathology residents and
practitioners, Russell and Rubinstein is a valuable addition to the libraries of neuroscientists, oncologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons.
