Posterior Fossa Tumors in Children
Christian Sainte-Rose, Giuseppe Cinallie altri
editore: Springer International Publishing AG
This book, written by experts from across the world, provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview covering all aspects of posterior fossa neoplasms in pediatric patients, including medulloblastoma, ependymoma, cerebellar astrocytoma, atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, chordoma, brain stem tumors, and rarer entities. For each tumor type, individual chapters are devoted to genetics, radiological evaluation using advanced imaging techniques, surgery, pathology, oncology, and radiation treatment. In addition, a separate section describes the various surgical approaches that may be adopted and offers guidance on the treatment of hydrocephalus and the role of intraoperative mapping and monitoring. Useful information is also provided on anatomy, clinical presentation, neurological evaluation, and molecular biology. The book closes by discussing in detail immediate postoperative care, the management of surgical complications, and longer-term rehabilitation and support. Posterior fossa tumors are the most common pediatric brain tumors but are often difficult to treat owing to their proximity to critical brain structures and their tendency to cause marked intracranial hypertension. Practitioners of all levels of experience will find Posterior Fossa Tumors in Children to be a richly illustrated, state of the art guide to the management of these tumors that will serve as an ideal reference in clinical practice.

Guida all'assistenza dei bambini e degli adolescenti malati di tumore
a cura di FIEOP, AIEOP
editore: Cortina Raffaello
Due sono i principali obiettivi di questa pubblicazione: dimostrare che praticare il volontariato in ambito medico in generale e in quello specialistico in particolare, come è il caso dell'oncologia pediatrica, comporta la necessità di una preparazione molto seria; la buona volontà, l'altruismo, lo spirito di sacrificio non bastano: occorre sapere in modo corretto che cosa si può fare e soprattutto quali sono i limiti entro i quali l'opera del volontario deve restare nel rapporto con il paziente, i suoi famigliari e l'équipe medica; porre in evidenza il fatto che la preparazione al volontariato non può essere perseguita soltanto in termini autodidattici, ma che occorre frequentare dei corsi di formazioni dedicati all'impostazione di base del volontario e all'affinamento di tale impostazione nel campo specifico dell'oncologia pediatrica. Prepararsi sui libri, da parte dell'aspirante volontario, è certamente importante, ma è soprattutto nel confronto con chi professionalmente si occupa del bambino e dell'adolescente malati di tumore che la preparazione al volontariato può essere efficacemente completata. In questo volume l'aspirante volontario in oncologia pediatrica troverà una sintesi di quanto si può reperire nella manualistica generale commentata, come se fosse un corso di formazione, da specialisti di lunga esperienza, operativi nei più importanti centri italiani di oncologia pediatrica.

Angelica R. Putnam, Jeremy C. Wallentine
editore: Amirsys, Inc
Diagnostic Pathology: Pediatrics offers expert guidance on over 170 of the most important benign and malignant pediatric neoplasm diagnoses. This 860-page book is divided into 16 sections that encompass every major organ system covering all the important pediatric neoplasms. Each chapter covers the main clinical, gross, and microscopic features in a systematic way that allows the pathologist to quickly arrive at the correct diagnosis. Unique to this book are the image galleries. Most textbooks include a limited number of images of the more common diagnoses (usually only one or two images), but this book includes a minimum of at least 5 images per diagnosis. Overall, the book includes over 2,431 stunning pathologic and radiographic images, along with several high-color medical illustrations. Each image is carefully annotated to highlight the elements that are most diagnostically significant. Many of the diagnoses discussed in this book contain images from entities in the differential diagnosis that allow for easy and quick comparisons when considering more than one diagnosis. In addition, ancillary techniques such as immuno histochemistry, molecular, and cytology are included for those neoplasms that may require other techniques in their work up. Lastly, this book features the classic benefits of all Amirsys[registered] titles, including time-saving bulleted text, Key Facts in each chapter, stunning annotated images, extensive index, and Amirsys eBook Advantage[trademark], an online version of the print book with larger images and fully searchable text.

Cancer in Children is an established and highly regarded introduction to paediatric oncology. In a clear and concise way, it covers the aetiology, symptoms, and treatment of cancer in children, the complications that can arise during treatment, and the various outcomes of the illness.

State-of-the-art descriptions of what is basic and essential for management is included; there are new chapters on clinical trials, evidence based practice, the treatment of cancer in less well-resourced countries, stem cell and immunotherapy, other malignant / borderline haematological conditions (myelodysplasia and myeloproliferative disorders), and on imaging. These all reflect important changes in the focus of the speciality in recent years. Aimed at paediatric oncologists, and trainees in oncology and paediatrics, this leading text will also appeal to paediatric nurses, cancer nurses, and paramedical paediatric staff.

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)
This new textbook has an international authorship and is a practical, up-to-date resource for clinicians responsible for the care of children with oncologic and malignant hematologic disease.

The textbook begins with an introduction to the general principles of the scientific foundation and treatment of childhood cancers and hematological malignancies. Separate sections are then devoted to descriptions of central nervous system tumors, hematological malignancies and solid tumors of childhood which encompass epidemiology, cellular and molecular biology, cancer genetics, immunology, pharmacology and the findings of clinical trials. For each area of science covered, key original references and reviews are highlighted to direct further reading. Diagnostic, biological, and therapeutic issues are integrated into each tumor-specific chapter, with evidence supporting the current rationales for risk stratification and the development of novel therapies. A final section then explores supportive care, palliative care, late effects considerations and psychosocial issues as relate to children's cancer.
L'assistenza ai bambini malati di tumore. Manuale per la formazione dei volontari
a cura di Associazione ital. di ematologia e oncol. pediatr.
editore: Cortina Raffaello
Il volontario non è uno psicologo e non deve pretendere di esserlo pur potendo svolgere una funzione assai importante nel sostenere i pensieri e i sentimenti dei bambini malati, in particolare quando lo sono di malattie potenzialmente fatali come i tumori. Un impegno assai complesso che esige una preparazione che tenga conto delle caratteristiche delle varie forme di malattie tumorali che possono interessare i bambini, delle fasi in cui si sviluppano e dell'impatto che possono avere sul bambino sul piano fisico ed emotivo, sull'umore, sul comportamento, sull'apprendimento. Il volontario, in alleanza con gli operatori che curano e assistono il bambino malato su un piano medico-psicoterapeutico specializzato, può diventare una presenza su cui poter fare sicuro affidamento, tanto più quanto più la sua opera è fondata su conoscenze derivabili, come in questo volume, dal sapere di professionisti di lunga esperienza.
