Crafted as a descriptive and visual text, Germ Cell Tumors features definitive reviews of the biology, diagnosis, and management of germ cell tumors. Incorporating extensive illustrations and tables, this book reviews the progress that has been made in the curative therapy of germ cell tumors over the past 25 years, progress that has lead to the positioning of germ cell tumor therapy as the paradigm of curative treatment in adult solid tumors. Most of the work has been produced on a multi-disciplinary basis, emphasizing the use of different diagnostic, laboratory, imaging, and management tools. In addition to a scientific and clinical review, a series of detailed discussions on the psychosocial issues, patient support, and management of the occasional problem cases that do not result in cure are featured. Germ Cell Tumors has been carefully illustrated with new photographs that illustrate diagnostic approaches, surgical techniques, and management complications.
