Salivary Gland Neoplasms is another useful addition to the Advances in Otolaryngology series. This issue (Vol 78) sees Prof Patrick Bradley (Nottingham) and David Eisele (Baltimore) co-edit a 206-page edition, nicely divided into 23 chapters, covering basics like molecular pathology, facial monitoring and much more.

With 49 figures and 25 tables, it is nicely laid out with contributions from world renowned experts in salivary gland neoplasms. The whole spectrum of salivary neoplasms – including both minor and major - has been covered.

Bradley and Eisele have co-authored a concise but useful chapter on neoplasms in children, which comprise 5% of all salivary gland malignancies, with details on the management plan and prognosis. Also nicely covered are areas such as quality of life, management of recurrent benign salivary tumours and metastatic cancer to the parotid. Each chapter focuses on the recent advances for the reader, followed by a comprehensive reference list.

Salivary Gland Neoplasms is a high quality educational resource, strongly recommended to all those clinicians who manage salivary gland neoplasms, and a must for departmental libraries.
