Here is the first book in 30 years to cover all diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of intramedullary spinal cord tumors (IMTs), a relatively rare but often misdiagnosed type of tumor. You will benefit from the largest personal collection of operated cases (171) ever assembled, as well as a review of 1,100 additional cases, making this the single most comprehensive book on IMTs available today. You will also appreciate the vital role of MRI in accurately diagnosing these tumors and review the latest technical refinements in surgical methods. Divided into three parts, the book begins with the diagnostic and therapeutic problems common to all intramedullary spinal cord tumors, then covers the histology of individual tumors, and finally examines the controversial value of radiotherapy in the treatment of both benign and malignant tumors in children and adults. Throughout, full-color illustrations depict anatomy from a surgical point of view.
