Because they raise both endocrine and neuro-oncological issues,
pituitary tumors require the coordinated expertise of the clinical
endocrinologist, the neuroradiologist, the neurosurgeon, the
neuropathologist, and the radiation therapist. In Diagnosis and
Management of Pituitary Tumors, eminent clinicians and specialists
thoroughly review in great detail every aspect of this unique class
of neoplasms. The historical, anatomical, physiological,
epidemiological, pathophysiological, pathological, and experimental
background is fully explored, and the topics covered include
prolactinomas, somatotroph adenomas, corticotroph adenomas,
thyrotroph adenomas, nonfunctioning tumors, pituitary tumors,
invasive adenomas, pituitary carcinomas, as well as those lesions,
exclusive of pituitary adenomas, that occur in the sellar region.
Also discussed are new methods in endocrine diagnosis, high
resolution imaging, receptor-mediated pharmacotherapy,
microsurgical techniques, improved methods of radiation delivery,
and the development of a precise and physiologically meaningful
classification of pituitary tumors. Much-needed and brilliantly
multidisciplinary, Diagnosis and Management of Pituitary Tumors
offers all those dealing with pituitary cancer patients today's
most comprehensive guide to diagnosis and treatment, one whose
coordinated treatment strategies have already sharply improved
long-term survival rates for many patients.
