The incidence of malignant tumors of the upper aerodigestive tract is increasing. The carcinomas of this area, mostly squamous cell carcinomas, are often accompanied by cervical lymph node metastases. Frequently, the primary tumor causes no discomfort and its existence is inferred from the presence of metastases. The present book offers an extensive overview of the differential diagnosis of lymph node diseases and their therapy for physicians in many disciplines - principally those that deal with oncology of the head and neck region, but also general medicine and pediatrics. Detailed descriptions of lymphologic principles create a basis for the understanding of the various lymph node diseases. High-quality photographs and tables underline the high instructive value of this volume.Vom Verlag:
