Summary This comprehensive subspecialty reference book on NeuroEndocrine Tumor (NET) pathology brings together the diagnostic and clinical expertise of an outstanding team of practicing neuroendocrine pathologists and oncologists. In addition to in-depth coverage of clinico-pathologic aspects of NETs of the various organ systems, the recent histological grading and staging schemes proposed by the North American and European NeuroEndocrine Tumor Societies (NANETS, ENETS), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC), this book also focuses on the recent molecular and therapeutic advances in the field of NET pathology and oncology. Neuroendocrine Tumors: Review of Pathology, Molecular and Therapeutic Advances will be an essential reference book for anatomic pathology (histopathology) residents, fellows, surgical pathologists, researchers, oncologists, surgeons and other medical professionals practicing advanced NET Pathology and Oncology in academia, community, private practice and research settings
