This is the leading international professional reference text that also serves as a bench book, describing all aspects of the pathology of brain tumours - genetics, molecular biology, epidemiology, morphology, immunohistochemistry, diagnostic criteria and prognosis. Beautifully illustrated in colour throughout and comprehensively referenced, Russell & Rubinstein is regarded as the ultimate source for key information.

For this seventh edition, the book returns to a single, clearly organised volume, and basic sciences are once again fully integrated within sections devoted to individual tumour entities. Entirely revised and updated throughout by a wide range of internationally revered authorities, the content reflects the latest tumour classification and grading while neuroradiologic correlation via state of the art neuroimaging techniques continues to be emphasised in all diagnostic entities. The offering is completed by a companion CD-ROM, providing quick and easy access to all the images from the book, retrievable by figure number, chapter title and keyword searches.


Content restructured and re-organised into a single volume for improved accessibility
* Basic science fully integrated
* Top quality colour photographs throughout, all presented on the fully searchable companion CD
