Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, the Oxford Textbook of Neuro-Oncology covers the pathophysiology, diagnosis, classification, and management of tumours of the nervous system. The book provides a comprehensive overview of tumour subtypes, in accordance with WHO classifications, along with management plans for adult and paediatric populations. The international team of co-editors ensures that expert commentaries on existing and wide-reaching diagnostic and treatment guidelines (including NCCN and ESMO) are accessible by a global audience.
