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.
