Neuro-oncology has evolved substantially as a clinical and research discipline over the past few decades. Cancer Neurology in Clinical Practice: Neurologic Complications of Cancer and its Treatment, Second Edition provides clinicians from various backgrounds and levels of training with a reference to help focus the differential diagnosis, treatment strategy, and management plan for the cancer patient with neurologic symptoms and findings.
The volume begins with an overview of the field of neuro-oncology and a review of the role of neuroimaging in the diagnosis of neuro-oncologic disease. Several chapters on interpretation and management of common neuro-oncologic symptoms follow. Subsequent sections contain chapters on the direct and indirect neurologic complications of cancer as well as complications of therapy. The final section focuses on the spectrum and management of neurologic disease in patients with cancer of specific organs.
Cancer Neurology in Clinical Practice: Neurologic Complications of Cancer and its Treatment, Second Edition is an important new work that aims to broaden and deepen the familiarity of clinicians with the range and management of neuro-oncologic diseases in order to improve the quality of care for cancer patients.
