MALT Lymphomas is a multidisciplinary book that covers all the aspects of MALT lymphomas, from the molecular biology, the aetiology and the pathology, to all the possible therapeutic approaches. Extranodal marginal zone B cell lymphoma of MALT type (MALT lymphoma) is one of the lymphoma subtypes that has allowed us some of the most interesting steps forward in the understanding and treatment of human cancers.

The eight contributions have been written by a team of international experts and represent an essential reading for oncologists, haematologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists and all the other physicians and researchers involved in cancer. The book is also supported by a series of figures illustrating the histology and the clinical features and the treatment.
