Preview

Metastasis to the cranium or its intracranial contents is a common neurologic complication of cancer. Although skull metastases are more common than parenchymal brain metastases, the latter are much more likely to be symptomatic (Fig. 5–1). Symptoms of brain metastases may be the presenting complaint in patients not known to have cancer.
