Neuro-Oncology is part of the “Essentials for Clinicians” series produced by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO). Although primary brain tumours are relatively infrequent and are not encountered on an everyday basis outside of specialised oncology units, basic knowledge of the classification and management standards of gliomas are important to ensure adequate patient care in every clinical setting. Importantly, this book also covers secondary central nervous system (CNS) affections of cancers and provides a clearly structured and concise overview of management strategies for brain metastases and leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, which are critical manifestations of advanced cancer and require competent care.
Neuro-Oncology: Essentials for Clinicians is structured into a section covering the basics of what every oncologist should know and a section providing more advanced information and novel developments. High-quality illustrations and clear structure make the book an easy-to-use and accessible source of knowledge, and provide a balanced and up-to-date knowledge of the current state of the art for students and physicians interested in cancers of the CNS.
