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.Detaileddescriptions of lymphologic principles create a basis for the understanding of the various lymph node diseases. High-quality photographs and tables underline the highinstructive value of this volume.

lymphatic metastases in H&N SCC--for the specialist Jan 24, 2006
Caveat: contrary to what you might expect from the title this book is not about distant metastases, or non-squamous cell carcinomas. If you are looking for that, move on.
What this book does cover is the lymphatic spread of H & N SCC. It starts with a nice account of the anatomy and development of the lymphatics of the H&N. Further chapters cover aspects such as patterns of spread of different cancers, as well as some discussion about the (mainly) surgical approaches to dissection.
Should you buy it? That depends. If you are looking for a general account of dissemination of malignancy or of H&N SCC you will be better served with one of the more general texts. If you are after a more detailed account, and in particular a European approach to some of these issues, then yes.
