Book Description :

This volume, the third part of Neuro-Oncology is, in a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach, devoted to the theme of "Neurological Disorders in Systemic Cancer", focusing on issues confronting neurologists in their daily practice. Metastatic disease of the nervous system afflicts about a quarter of all patients with cancer. One chapter is devoted entirely to the origin and mechanisms causing metastatic disease of the nervous system. The neurological complications of hematological neoplasms, including the leukemias, lymphomas, and paraproteinemias, are reviewed in depth, as is the stunning progress made in unravelling the mechanisms of paraneoplastic syndromes of the nervous system. For this intriguing group of disorders, separate attention has been paid to the underlying changes in molecular biology, to the general diagnostic approach and to the characteristics of each of the paraneoplastic syndromes of the central and peripheral nervous system, often associated with specific tumors. All aspects of these disorders are extensively covered in this volume, providing the reader with a working knowledge and useful reference system for understanding the spectrum of neurological disorders that may develop in systemic cancer. Neuro-Oncology will assist the clinical neurologist and other specialists dealing with nervous system complications of cancer in arriving at a well-defined diagnosis and establishing an effective and thoughtful management plan.

Book Description :

The aim of the Neurology in Practice series is to provide a clinical 'in the office' or 'at the bedside' guide to effective patient care for neurologists in practice and in training. The tone will be practical, not academic. The working assumption is that readers want to know what (and what not) might or should be done, without over emphasis on the why. That said, it is important to review the crucial basic science necessary for effective diagnosis and management, and to provide reminders in the context of the practical chapters. The books will not be heavily referenced, in line with a more practical approach. This allows for smoother reading (and also relieves the burden of comprehensive citing from authors). Key evidence (clinical trials, Cochrane or other meta analyses) should be summarized in 'Evidence at a Glance' boxes and key references such as reviews, major papers can be provided in the 'selected bibliography' at the end of each chapter. Practical guidance will be provided through: the use of algorithms and guidelines where they are appropriate 'Tips and Tricks' boxes – hints on improving outcomes perhaps via practical technique, patient questioning etc 'Caution' warning boxes – hints on avoiding problems, perhaps via contraindications 'Science Revisited' – quick reminder of the basic science principles necessary for understanding

Book Description :

Cancer imposes daunting effects on the nervous system Brain cancer is one of the most devastating diagnoses a physician can deliver. Cancer of the nervous system can take many different forms. Treatment is specific to the type of malignancy, its location in the nervous system and, increasingly, its molecular characteristics. The challenges manifest further when management choices need to be made, and multidisciplinary approaches are required. Additional complexities arise in children, where the developing neurological system requires more sensitive treatment. Neuro-oncology unmasks the complexities to provide a straightforward guide to cancers of the nervous system. Following a general approach to diagnosis and treatment, the clinical aspects of specific cancer types in adults and children are explained in practical terms. A final section considers the effect of system cancer on the nervous system and the side effects of treatment. Clinical in approach, practical in execution, Neuro-oncology will help you diagnose and manage your patients more effectively.

Book Description :

Cancer is often associated with pain and is a frequent issue in patients with chemotherapy-induced neuropathy. The participation of patients in studies and their influence on study design is important. Patient support groups have been formed for several forms of cancer, and are helpful in dispensing advice. The treatment of cancer patients must include activities of daily living and quality of life. Often, palliative care and end-of-life care are part of the disease trajectory. As this book shows, patients do not have equal access to cancer treatment around the world, and often basic issues as diagnosis, treatment are lacking.
