B.V. Afanasyev, I.A. Baldueva, M. B. Belogurova. Pediatric Oncology, 2002
This manual is distinguished by the fact that it includes sections previously considered as the exclusive prerogative of pediatric hematologists - various types of malignant blood lesions in children, although the approach to the diagnosis and treatment of this pathology is characteristic of oncology departments.
The manual summarizes modern foreign data and the rich practical experience of the staff of the St. Petersburg Center for Advanced Medical Technologies (City Hospital No. 31) and the Center for Hematology of St. Petersburg State Medical University. The basic principles of diagnosis and treatment are given, the doses of radiation exposure and the principles of chemotherapy are given.
The manual is intended for pediatric oncologists, doctors of other specialties.
