This monograph, one of Charles C Thomas' American Lecture Series, is written mainly from a neurosurgical point of view.
Part I, almost one-third of the book, is a careful consideration of this neoplasm against the background of our current knowledge of neoplasia in general. In addition, the relationship of medulloblastoma to the other neuroectodermal neoplasms as well as to leptomeningeal sarcomas is reviewed.
Part II of the book is a review of the clinical aspects of this disease. Material was collected from the University of Chicago Clinics, Yale University and the Lahey Clinic, as well as from the Brain Tumor Registry at New Haven.
