Zadeh, British Journal of Cancer, Vol. Several chapters on interpretation and management of common neuro-oncologic symptoms follow. In addition to capturing the latest Cancer Neurology In Clinical Practice in the rapidly evolving fields of oncology and cancer neurology, the goal of this resource is to lead clinicians toward prompt diagnosis and intervention in order to improve patient quality of life.
For example, the chapter on pain and the chapter on metastasis miss the emerging role of vertebroplasty for the management of spine metastasis and metastatic spine fractures, which has proven to have a very beneficial effect on vertebral metastatic pain.
… There are few books on this topic aimed at general neurologists, and this book addresses that need. Neuro-oncology has evolved substantially as a clinical and research discipline over the past few decades. The scope of this book is indeed unique as it offers a comprehensive view on topics forming a common denominator to both neurology and oncology, but that are too often neglected in classical textbooks of either disciplines.
Overall this textbook is very comprehensive and encompasses main neuro-oncological challenges. Subsequent sections contain chapters on the direct and indirect neurologic complications of cancer as well as complications of therapy.

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.

However, as neuro-oncology is becoming a prominent and true multidisciplinary specialty, there is a need for such a multidisciplinary book addressing practical issues that are encountered every day in the clinical oncological practice.
In our opinion there are few minor and emerging aspects of cancer neurology that are not touched upon.
