This atlas is a practical approach to problems commonly encountered in paediatric tumour diagnosis. It comprehensively covers a wide range of common and unusual entities. Over 300 full-colour illustrations are complemented by a text which is pragmatic and succinct. References have been carefully selected to reflect current thought and well-written reviews. New treatment strategies have led to considerable improvement in the salvage rate and prognosis in childhood neoplasia. Histological diagnosis in this area is fraught with problems and the demand invariably has been for a prompt and accurate histological reporting. The problems although wide-ranging, are particularly manifest in the area of the small round-cell tumours which constitute an important proportion of paediatric cancers. This atlas will be invaluable as a bench manual for the practising pathologist and as a study aid for the trainee. It will also be of interest to all oncologists and paediatricians.Variend, S. is the author of 'Paediatric Neoplasia' with ISBN 9780792389002 and ISBN 079238900X.
