  • Description
  • Details

Metastatic Carcinomas of Unknown Origin is the first comprehensive, fully illustrated discussion of the clinical features, pathologic attributes, and treatment approaches of metastatic carcinomas of unknown origin (MCUOs).

More than 30,000 cases of MCUOs are identified in the United States each year, and since treatment plans for tumors are predicated largely on their primary sites, management can be especially difficult. This unique text provides a framework for approaching these complex issues, with contributions from international experts in the field of MCUOs.

The book is divided into five topic areas, covering clinical presentations, methods of pathologic evaluation, techniques for topographic localization, and treatment and prognosis of carcinomas from an unknown anatomic source, as well as postmortem validation studies pertaining to those subjects.
