From the Reviews of the First Edition…

"…provides an excellent overview and introduction to the management of neurological complications of cancer. Well organized and succinct, it is easy to locate and utilize information…" – Neurology

"…an important resource for the medical oncologist, in the diagnosis and treatment of many neurological conditions caused by cancer… This book is original and is recommended for medical oncologists and radiotherapists, who will find it a useful guide to dealing with the neurological problems encountered in cancer patients." – Annals of Oncology

"The editors and contributors are to be congratulated for producing a timely and comprehensive text of this rapidly evolving field. I strongly recommend Cancer Neurology in Clinical Practice for neurologists, including neuro-oncologists… The practical nature and clear presentation of the text make the information very accessible to those in neurosurgery, medical and radiation oncology, neuropathology, and neuroradiology." – Annals of Neurology

 

From the Foreword to the First Edition…

This book gives a comprehensive analysis of how cancer affects the nervous system… It encompasses the experience of senior physicians actively engaged in neuro-oncology centers throughout the world… The broad scope of this book will appeal to physicians who are not specialists, but who want an up-to-date reference on all aspects of neuro-oncology. – Jerome Posner, MD, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY

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.
