Raven Press, a leader in publishing good neurology texts, has done it again. These two monographs, the second and third volumes of the International Review of Child Neurology Series, are excellent and timely reviews of two neurological disorders not recently reviewed elsewhere. The volumes are sponsored by the International Child Neurological Association, which is devoted to providing an outlet for the exchange of professional ideas and to advancing neurological sciences in infancy and childhood. These official publications of the association have definitely achieved that goal. The authorship is broad, representing a superb field of child neurology in the United States and throughout the world.
Brain Tumors in Children includes sections on principles of diagnosis and treatment, management, and complications. In this single volume new concepts of epidemiology, neuroradiologic diagnosis, surgical excision, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and the long-term effects of radiation and chemotherapy are discussed. Case examples and algorithms are used
