This textbook was conceived as a companion atlas to Russell and Rubinstein's Pathology of Tumors of the Nervous System, 6th edition. The atlas provides expanded photographic coverage of variant pathologic diagnoses discussed but not illustrated in Russell and Rubinstein's text. This is meant to be a bench-side reference addressing some of the diagnostic difficulties encountered by pathologists working with brain tumors, who, as the authors note, are often neither neuropathologists nor neuroradiologists. In keeping with an atlas format, the authors choose to omit discussions relating to embryogenesis, molecular biology, and diagnostic techniques that are currently considered experimental.
