Summary note:
"This book provides an in-depth review of the neurological complications of systemic cancer, including common problems like brain metastases, spinal cord compression, cerebrovascular events, and leptomeningeal disease, as well as less common complications such as paraneoplastic disorders and neoplastic plexopathy. In addition to chapters covering the major complications, other chapters review problems related to each specific tumor type (e.g., breast, lung, colorectal), and neurological complications related to the treatment of cancer, including irradiation and chemotherapy. This book is a very useful reference for neurologists and oncologists."--BOOK JACKET.
