Metastatic Complications of Cancer Involving the Central and Peripheral Nervous Systems.
Neurol Clin. 2018 Aug;36(3):579-598
Authors: Mendez JS, DeAngelis LM
Neurologic complications of cancer may involve both the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system manifesting as brain, leptomeningeal, intramedullary, intradural, epidural, plexus, and skull base metastases. Excluding brain involvement, neurologic complications affecting these other sites are relatively infrequent, but collectively they affect more than 25% of patients with metastatic cancer causing significant morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis and intervention optimize quality of life and improve survival.
