Sarcomas of the brain.

Sarcomas of the brain. The value of this book lies in the detailed presentation of representative cases of these uncommon intracranial neoplasms. In the authors' series these neoplasms constituted 3% of all their intracranial tumors (241 of 8,070 cases). Additional attractive features of the volume are the brief historical resumés of the nomenclature and the fine quality of the photomicrographs. These permit comparison of one's own tumors of this category (in series perhaps not nearly as extensive as the authors' Mayo Clinic collection) and thereby can aid greatly in classification. Certain preferences in terminology adopted by Kernohan and Uihlein may be questioned. An example of this is the designation of osteogenic sarcoma of the brain. The genesis of this tumor is not, of course, from bone. It is a fibrosarcoma which forms osteoid tissue, a common enough feature of some extra-cranial, nonosteogenic fibrosarcomas. On the same grounds, objection may be raised to the term http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
