Reviewing The IBNCC Chapter “Neuro-oncology Emergencies

Today, I review Dr. Josh FarkasInternet Book of Neurocritical Care chapter, Neuro-oncology emergencies, June 2, 2022.

All that follows is excerpted from Dr. Farkas’ chapter above.

Neuro-oncologic emergencies are commonly encountered in critical care.  Rapidly evolving biological therapies for cancer offer patients exciting benefits, but have also created new sets of complications (e.g., checkpoint inhibitor-induced encephalitis).  Patients may be suffering from complications of the malignancy itself, complications of therapy, or wholly unrelated problems.
