This is the excellent second edition of a text from the same editors,
first published in 1998. The first edition uniquely combined atlas and text
as a ready reference for physicians caring for patients with neurologic and
neurosurgical disorders as well as for pathologists.
The first edition was a success with its generous photomicrographs,
line drawings, well-placed tables, and well-balanced concise and pertinent
text. The editors follow the same format in the second edition. Illustrations
include gross photographs, color photomicrographs, and electron micrographs;
their quality is excellent, consistent, and pleasing to the eye, page after
