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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the second edition:

"This textbook is a valuable resource for medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, as well as neurologists and neuro-oncologists dealing with these patients. … Overall, the chapters are well organized, clearly written, fairly balanced, and reasonably up to date. … I would recommend it as a learning tool to physicians in training (medical students, residents, and fellows) and for more experienced physicians as both a review/ update and a way to gain more in-depth knowledge and insight into the neurologic problems of cancer patients." (John C. Flickinger, International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics, Vol. 73 (2), 2009)

"The general organization of the book is logical and facilitates its practical and everyday use. … Overall this textbook is very comprehensive and encompasses main neuro-oncological challenges. … Schiff, Kesari and Wen have edited a very elegant and highly practical textbook, written by recognized authorities in their respective fields, which will be used by a wide range of medical and surgical specialists who are confronted on a daily basis with neurological manifestations of cancer in their practice." (I. Radovanovic and G. Zadeh, British Journal of Cancer, Vol. 100 (6), 2009)

"Cancer Neurology in Clinical Practice is the second edition of a multi-authored book … . The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary review of the management of the neurologic complications of cancer. … The chapters are also all very well organized. … this book is appropriate for all members of the neuro-oncology team, it will be most useful for the neurologist and medical oncologist caring for patients with systemic cancer. The tables are excellent. The neuroimaging is well chosen … ." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 30, February, 2009)
