About the Authors
  • Nervous System is the new atlas-oriented resource in central nervous system pathology. As the fourth book in the Cambridge Illustrated Surgical Pathology series it is the most comprehensive text of methods utilized by pathologists to accurately diagnose diseases affecting the brain, meninges, and spinal cord. The book is a richly illustrated guide to surgical neuropathology, including all primary brain tumors as well as others arising near the nervous system that are also within the scope of neurosurgical practice. Numerous neuroimaging examples are provided to underscore the importance of knowing the basics of radiographic studies in accurately diagnosing CNS pathology. A complete spectrum of nonneoplastic neuropathological entities is also illustrated, including infectious, inflammatory, and epilepsy-related neuropathology. Additional chapters address intraoperative consultation and frozen sections, as well as CSF cytopathology.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The text is clear and to the point, and is well leavened with practical advice … consistent flow and tone … the importance of patient age is emphasised throughout. This is a welcome feature … distinguished by the size and quality of the illustrations and the diagnostic expertise of the author. The lucid accompanying text is clear but concise, and will provide a practical brief introduction to the various lesions represented. The sections on epilepsy and cerebrospinal fluid cytology are particularly unique and helpful.' Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology
