Wick, MD. is the first comprehensive, fully illustrated discussion of the clinical features, pathologic attributes and treatment approaches of Metastatic Carcinomas of Unknown Origin (MCUOs).More than 30,000 cases of MCUOs are identified in the United States each year, and since treatment plans for tumours are predicated largely on their primary sites, management can be especially difficult.
