The nervous system constitutes arguably the most complex organ system in the human body, which contributes to the over-susceptibility of disease in this area. Although brain tumors were once an automatic death sentence, the outlook for recovery has brightened significantly in the past decade. The pathologist plays an indispensable role in surgical diagnosis; he or she must accurately diagnose a potentially wide array of disease entities, determine the spread of disease within millimeters, and assess patient prognosis. This new and modern reference in neuropathology comprehensively covers all the methods used by pathologists to accurately diagnose a wide array of neurologic illnesses. Brain and spinal cord tumors are the predominant focus, but a full spectrum of infectious, inflammatory, and congenital disorders are also covered in detail, in both pediatric and adult populations, with a full range of diagnostic modalities. The book is illustrated with more than 1,200 full-color photomicrographs and accompanied by a CD-ROM of all images in a downloadable format.

'... has an admirable breadth of scope and approach to surgical neuropathology ... the references provided are helpful and up to date. The CD ROM accompanying the book is a very useful source of images for further study and for teaching purposes ... well-produced ... particularly successful in including sections on the diagnosis of non-neoplastic disorders, including inflammatory disorders, demyelinating diseases and dementia. These topics are amongst the most challenging in neuropathological biopsy diagnosis, so their inclusion is particularly welcome.' BMA Medical Book Awards reviewer
"The intended target audience is practicing pathologists and trainees, especially those who are not experienced in the handling and diagnostic approach to neuropathological entities. Neurosurgeons will gain valuable and practical insights into the practice of neuropathology detailed in this book. Experienced neuropathologists will also benefit from the carefully considered, yet sometimes controversial topics the author explores. Dr. Miller, now clinical professor of pathology and anatomical sciences at the University of Missouri, Columbia, has outstanding credentials. He has published widely on neurosurgical topics during his 28-plus year career at academic centers recognized for their neurosurgical and neuropathological excellence, notably Massachusetts General Hospital and New York University Medical Center, opportunities that provided high-volume, exceptional quality, and diverse neurosurgical specimens....The working guide approach, written in the author's thought-provoking style with in-depth analyses of many complex issues relating to neuropathological diagnosis, distinguishes this book from several current popular neuropathology texts." --Doody's Review Service
