With increasing emphasis on the early diagnosis and management of urologic tumours, it is imperative that the practising urologist comprehend the relevance of the morphology for the clinical diagnostic and therapy. Moreover, the clinician should be fully informed of the importance of modern morphological methods (PCR, FISH, CGH etc) for the diagnosis and management of urological tumours. Clinical Pathology of Urological Tumours is not only a necessary tool for the attending urologist, it will also satisfy the needs of oncologists, especially urololgic oncologists, residents in pathology or even pathologists, who are not daily faced with urological tumours.
