Neurologic complications of systemic cancer and its treatment often present complex diagnostic and management problems, commonly have a great impact on quality of life, and are a major factor in the death of cancer patients. In Cancer Neurology in Clinical Practice, leading neuro-oncologists from around the world comprehensively review the neurologic symptoms that cancer patients experience, and show how these symptoms should be interpreted and evaluated. Organized by both symptom and type of cancer, the book carefully describes each diagnostic neurologic entity-from symptomatology, to diagnostic studies, to management and prognosis-and presents each major type of cancer in terms of its neurologic problems and how they should be handled. This dual organization allows physicians quickly to obtain neurologic guidance on either a diagnostic problem (e.g., confusion and delirium) or on the neurologic problems and treatments associated with a specific type of cancer (e.g., lung cancer). The role of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and other palliative measures are considered for each type of problem. Multidisciplinary and up-to-date, Cancer Neurology in Clinical Practice explains to the busy physician treating cancer patients all the latest findings in neuro-oncology that will help sharpen their differential diagnoses, diagnostic strategies, and treatment plans for those patients with neurologic symptoms and findings
