About this book


In the last decade tremendous progress has been made in the diagnosis and treatment of tumours of the mediastinum. The use of immunohistochemistry, molecular biology, electron microscopy, CT and MRI, and a better knowledge of tumour markers, has made for better diagnosis, often without the need for biopsy, in many cases. This in turn has clarified the classification and thus the epidemiology of tumours of the mediastinum, and modern radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery has led to improved survival of patients at risk.
With over 300 illustrations, mostly in full colour, and a well-referenced text, this atlas is an invaluable bench reference for the practising diagnostic pathologist and a study aid for the trainee, as well as a comprehensive source of reference for oncologists and surgeons.

` In summary, I would highly recommend this book to the general pathologist who may have to deal with a difficult problem from the mediastinum. At 132 pages, the book is short and presents its information in a crisp, forthright manner. ... I would consider it well worth buying. '
Clinical Oncology, 5 No. 6, 1993
'This book is a pleasure to read and can recommended without restrictions as a valuable supplement to more extensive textbooks. It is also a valuable guide for clinicians and surgeons involved in thoracid pathology.' Ultrastructural Pathology 17:123 1993
