Diagnostic criteria, pathological features, and genetic and other associated molecular alterations are described in a disease-oriented manner. This volume updates the existing ICD-O codes and provides new codes for use in epidemiology and cancer registration. It also provides information on clinical features, pathology, genetics, prognosis, and protective factors for each of the tumour types covered.The editors expect that this volume will be of particular interest to pathologists, oncologists, and ophthalmologists who manage or research tumours of the eye. Sections are included on all recognized neoplasms (and their variants) of the eye, lacrimal apparatus, and conjunctiva. There have been particularly substantial changes to the classification of conjunctival neoplasia and melanoma, based on the latest information from genetic and molecular studies.This book has been prepared by 64 contributors from 22 countries. It contains more than 400 colour images and tables, and more than 1400 references.
