Foreword
When I began specializing in neuro-oncology, Brain Tumors: An Encyclopedic Approach was the textbook I turned to for a comprehensive overview of the field. Edited by the preeminent neurosurgeons Edward Laws and Andrew Kaye, the third edition is updated to highlight the changes in diagnosis and management that are rapidly occurring as a result of advances in our understanding of tumor biology and etiology. During my career, I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with Dr. Laws, who has been on the front lines of brain tumor treatment and research since the 1970s – he is not only a brilliant physician, but also a generous educator and esteemed scholar.
As with the previous editions, the third edition contains excellent illustrations and clear, coherent descriptions of all central nervous system tumors, including those that are very rare. However, the most important aspect of the third edition is the attention given to the explosion of research into the cellular origins of brain tumors, as well as an understanding of the aberrant biologic pathways and the rational use of targeted therapies. It is critical to understand the development of these treatment strategies as we advance towards personalized medicine.
Over fifteen years since the original publication of the first edition, Brain Tumors: An Encyclopedic Approach is an outstanding, comprehensive reference guide for the diagnosis and management of brain tumors. It is an invaluable resource for all medical professionals who treat patients with this disease, especially for residents and fellows who are contemplating careers in neuro-oncology.

Preface to the First Edition
The management of brain tumors is the single most important role of the present day neurosurgeon. The chilling diagnosis of a brain tumor quite reasonably strikes fear into patients, their friends, and relatives. The consequences of the diagnosis include the implication of an erosion of the faculties of the mind combined with physical disablility and death. The appropriate diagnosis and management requires the very best skills a neurosurgeon has learned, a culmination of all the knowledge that has been gleaned from his or her first days in medical school to the most recent clinical experience practising the art of neurosurgery, along with the insight that has been obtained into human nature and frailty. Treatment involves the very best of both technical skills and human interaction. Throughout the often protracted management of a patient with a brain tumor the surgeon must constantly strive to utilize the very latest in scientific advancement, whilst maintaining a sympathetic and guiding influence on the patient and the family. The treatment of brain tumors has expanded rapidly over the past decades. It was the discovery of the cell by Schleiden and Schwann in 1838 and 1839 and the description of neuroglia by Virchow in 1846 that formed the basis for the neuropathology of brain tumors. The concept of cerebral localization of neurological function developed through the nineteenth century and the first scientifically performed brain tumor operation took place on 25 November 1884 by Rickman Godlee in London. That patient died from the glioma twenty five days after surgery. The subsequent pioneers in brain tumor surgery, including Cushing, Dandy, Keen, MacEwen, and Horsley demonstrated not only the possibilities of brain tumor surgery, but also at times, the seemingly insurmountable difficulties that had to be overcome for the patient to be treated effectively and safely. The last two decades have, in particular, provided the technological advancement necessary for the understanding of the many varied facets of brain tumors, including their intricate biology, the molecular events that are at the basis of their development, and the equipment necessary for effective treatment. We now know that the ideal management involves a wide range of skills and techniques, utilizing all the best technical and human resources of a hospital and community.
In the past the mystique of brain tumors has, at times, inadvertently restricted the full understanding of these tumors. This book aims to provide a complete coverage of brain tumors, including their biological basis, diagnosis and management techniques. Aiming to be the ultimate reference on all the technical facets of brain tumor management, this book describes the present concepts of the treatment and the management of all brain tumors, although we realise that social values vary from region to region and in many countries facilities are less than optimal. In general, references have been chosen for their general coverage of the topics, ease of access, historical interest, and, in some cases, because they will provide thought-provoking alternatives to give a different perspective to the subject. It is not possible to list and acknowledge all the many people who have helped in the preparation of this volume both knowingly and as the result of their influences on our own neurosurgical practices. We particularly acknowledge our many colleagues, both past and present, who by their influence and example have made this type of book possible.
