Patients with brain tumor encounter a wide spectrum of tumor and treatment-related complications during their disease course. Tumors may serve as seizure substrates, are associated with a hypercoagulable state that results in thromboembolic complications, and may influence mood and cognition. Antitumor and supportive therapies may also have deleterious effects. Herein, we discuss major aspects of supportive care for patients with brain tumors, with attention to benefit and complications derived from the management of seizures, brain edema, venous thromboembolism, fatigue, mood alterations, and cognitive dysfunction.
