Following a review of general patterns of metastatic spread in man, metastasis to or progression of neoplasms in several organ systems are highlighted. Covers: the central nervous system; esophageal cancer; lung, large intestine, liver, bone, and epithelial neoplasms; endocrine cells; pigmented, sup
`All these articles make instructive reading, and so this volume, too, should find its place on the shelves of every oncologist. Content and outward presentation justify the price.'
