This unique case-based review of surgical oncology offers excellent preparation for oral board examinations, which emphasize both general knowledge and case management.

The book presents 91 cases structured to reflect the surgeon's decision-making process. Each case begins with a patient presentation and imaging studies or pathology results and proceeds through a series of decision points—differential diagnosis, requests for additional tests, diagnosis, surgical approach, discussion of potential pitfalls, and follow-up. Cases are grouped by organ system and each section ends with a treatment algorithm summarizing the decision points.
