WHO Classification of Tumours of the Central Nervous System Book Excerpt:

"WHO Classification of Tumours of the Central Nervous System" is the first volume of the 4th Edition of the World Health Organization series on histological and genetic typing of human tumors. This authoritative, concise reference book provides an international standard for oncologists and pathologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome. Diagnostic criteria pathological features and associated genetic alterations are described in a strictly disease-oriented manner. Sections on all recognized neoplasms and their variants include new ICD-O codes, incidence age and sex distribution, location, clinical signs and symptoms, pathology, genetics, and predictive factors. This book is in the series commonly referred to as the "Blue Book" series. The book prepared by 73 authors from 19 countries contains more than 400 color photographs, numerous X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) images, charts and more than 2,500 references. ."..The title of this book is typically modest. It is not only a classification of tumours of the central nervous system but an authoritative and explicit account of this group of tumours...This the fourth edition contains a number of distinct improvements on previous editions both in layout and content... One new feature is the clear account of the WHO's grading system its rationale and its application... New tumour entities are included...Newly recognized histological variants include pilomyxoid astrocytoma. Both anaplastic medulloblastoma and medulloblastoma with extensive nodularity have gained recognition in the classification... There are some differences in classification from the third edition most notably relating to anaplastic oligoastrocytoma. The change in emphasis follows cited differences in prognosis between mixed tumours with and without necrosis. Other changes are also apparent e.g. within the atypical teratoid/rhabdoid section mention of the INI-1 locus in the genetics section in the third edition has been expanded to include immunohistochemistry in the fourth edition. The fourth edition is unique in its clear-targeted and succinct style of presentation of tumors of the CNS... it will be of universal appeal in neuro-oncology and will most certainly form the main basis for diagnosis by multidisciplinary teams managing patients with tumors of the CNS." -- Nicki Cohen* and Roy O. Weller** *Specialist Registrar in Neuropathology Southampton University Hospital NHS Trust UK. ** Emeritus Professor of Neuropathology Southampton University UK in" Neuropathology and Applied Neurobiology. ."..Representing the first volume in the fourth edition series of the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Tumours this book provides a welcome mix of old and new. ... Perhaps the most noticeable improvement comes by way of a voluminous expansion in the genetics sections of the majority of tumor categories. This update parallels the recent explosion of research utilizing high-resolution genome screening and other molecular techniques. The authors have done an outstanding job in distilling the information housed in over 2,500 cited references into a reader friendly authoritative reference of CNS neoplasia. In summation, the current edition of the "WHO Classification of Tumours of the Central Nervous System" will serve as an indispensable textbook for all of those involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with tumors of the CNS and will make a valuable addition to libraries in pathology, radiology, oncology and neurosurgery departments. --"Journal of Neuropathology & Exp.

Primary Brain Tumors Book Excerpt:

This volume represents the formal presentations and discussions which took place during a three-day meeting in March 1988 at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. It is" dedicated to my friend of more than thirty years, Prof. Dr. Klaus Joachim Ziilch, who died in Berlin on December 2. 1988 while this volume was still in preparation. Klaus Zulch had devoted a significant portion of his professional life to a better understanding of central nervous tumors. Over the past two decades he served as the Director of the Collaborating Center for CNS Tumors, under the auspices of the World Health Organization (WHO), and it was largely through his efforts that the work of the CelJ. ter in developing criteria for a histologic classification of these neoplasms was kept alive. Without his stimulus this Houston meeting would probably not have taken place. In early 1987 he approached me with the idea of convening, at an early date, a meeting in Houston in collaboration with the Department of Neuro-Oncology of the Cancer Center, of which I was then Chairman. The purpose of this proposed meeting was to discuss recent research developments that might have a profound influence on the classification of brain tumors and ultimately necessitate revision of the "Blue Book" of the WHO on Histological Typing 0/ Tumours 0/ the Central Nervous System.

MRI Atlas of Central Nervous System Tumors Book Excerpt:

From the review of the Italian edition in "Neurosurgery": "...The first chapter by a physicist from the Università dell'Aquila presents the scientific basis of the complex phenomenon of nuclear magnetic resonance and MR imaging in a clear and reasonably simple fashion. The next two chapters of the remaining eleven are excellent background and informational chapters; one is on MR anatomy of the brain compared with numerous appropriate anatomic sections and includes labeled reference drawings, and the other is on the classification of tumors of the central nervous system and includes a table of the MR differential characteristics of the major intracranial neoplasms. Each of the remaining chapters deals with one of the following: neuroepithelial tumors, pineal region tumors, meningiomas, neurinomas, pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas, angiomas and aneurysms producing mass effect, intracranial metastatic tumors, rare tumors and expansive nontumoral lesions, and, lastly, spinal tumors. There is a brief clinical discussion on each of these topics, and each chapter is illustrated with numerous excellent reproductions of good quality MR images of these lesions. The selection, presentation, variety, and quality of the cases and the outstanding illustrations make for a superb atlas..." #H.V. Rizzoli, Washington, DC#1 This atlas is the result of the cooperative work of radiologists and neurosurgeons of the National Cancer Institute in Rome. The English edition has been enriched with many new images. This has been necessary because of the actual wide use of Gadolinium as a contrast agent and the use of more sophisticated software for MR angiography.

Tumors of the Central Nervous System Book Excerpt:

In the decade since the publication of the Third Series Fascicle on Tumors of the Central Nervous System, many new entities have been described, prognostic significance of certain tumor subtypes established, grading systems revised, and molecular features have been correlated with tumor types and grades. Drs. Burger and Scheithauer have integrated all of these new findings, as well as classical morphological clinical and neuroradiological descriptions and illustrations, into an entirely new and completely up-to-date text/atlas that demystifies the complex subject of CNS tumors and tumor-like lesions for the general pathologists. The discussion of normal anatomy includes cytologic and radiologic correlations, as do discussions of each of the common and rare CNS lesions. Virtually all of the non-radiographic illustrations are in color, and references are current through 2006 and 2007 (the 2007 World Health Organization classification is used throughout the Fascicle). In addition to encyclopedic coverage of CNS neoplasms, approximately 15 percent of the almost 600 text pages are devoted to the numerous benign tumor-like lesions of various etiologies that may be mistaken for neoplasms. A set of fifteen Appendices is devoted to differential diagnostic algorithms which simplify the approach to a difficult specimen. The authoritative yet user-friendly approach of the authors has created a work that will be useful for many years to both pathologist and clinicians interested in tumors of the central nervous system.

Personalized Medicine and Neurosurgery Book Excerpt:

The Precision Medicine Initiative, which was instituted by President Barack Obama on January 20, 2015, highlighted the importance that advances in genomics and related “-omic” approaches have made to science and medicine, and it set the stage for their federally funded and mandated integration into the delivery of health care. Whether these advances comprise large-scale approaches, such as The Cancer Genome Atlas, which provides a modern classification of cancers based on molecular profiles, or genealogy initiatives, which seek to trace the movement of our early ancestors out of Africa, genomic technology has taken us closer to developing targeted therapies and a refined understanding of our evolutionary journey. It is against this backdrop that we summarized some of the recent advances in the field of precision medicine, or personalized medicine, as they pertain to neurosurgery. In this e-Book collection provided by Frontiers in Surgery: Neurosurgery, we present a collection of articles by leaders in the field of neurosurgery that highlight domains using a personalized approach for the treatment of patients or avenues when personalization is possible and when it will likely alter the care of patients with neurological diseases.
