Show Summary Details

Preview

For most patients with cancer, iatrogenic neurotoxicity results from either chemotherapy (see Chapter 12) or ionizing radiation (see Chapter 13). In a few, anesthesia, tumor surgery, diagnostic tests, and other procedures related to patient care may result in significant neurologic dysfunction. Some of these nervous system abnormalities are described in this chapter.
