This book is an atlas of tumors which arise primarily from tissues and organs of the retroperitoneal space, mesentery and peritoneum. These tumors are classified in a usable manner as to benignity, malignancy, and tissue of origin. Neurogenous tumors, tumors arising from heterotopic adrenal cortical tissue, and teratomas are excellently portrayed. Rare primary tumors of the mesentery and omentum are discussed. Mesothelioma and metastatic lesions of the peritoneum are thoroughly covered. A brief but adequate gross and microscopic description is given of each tumor, and numerous references to illustrations aid greatly in studying the unusual neoplasms covered by this work.
