Oxford Textbook of Neuro-Oncology eBook Free The practice of neuro-oncology entails the management of many different types of tumours of the nervous system by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers. These tumours represent a diverse spectrum of underlying molecular biological subtypes, prognostic categories, age distributions, and treatment recommendations. The World Health Organization (WHO) classification of central nervous system tumours is the foundation for the categorization and, by extension, clinical management and treatment of patients with all types of nervous system tumours. The WHO classification has traditionally been based on light microscopic description of the cellular elements of tumours in the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and meninges. The 2016 WHO classification of central nervous system tumours for the first time incorporates molecular markers into the categorization of some types of nervous system tumours, particularly gliomas. This revised classification will serve as the basis for future clinical trials and, ultimately, management recommendations for these newly recognized pathological-molecular subsets of central nervous system tumours.

 

Current management guidelines are derived, however, from clinical trials and studies utilizing earlier versions of the WHO classification system. This book is intended for clinicians as a complement to the WHO classification system with a focus on clinical management of nervous system tumours in adults and children. Each chapter is coauthored by a multidisciplinary, international group of leading authorities in adult and paediatric neuro-oncology. The book is organized according to the 2007 WHO classification of central nervous system tumours and each chapter follows a similar framework.

The introductory chapter reviews the 2016 revision of the WHO classification of central nervous system tumours and how these changes may influence future clinical trials, clinical practice, and subsequent editions of this book.
