Abstract

The diverse medical and neurologic complications of central nervous system (CNS) neoplasms or their treatment cause significant morbidity and mortality. Thus, their recognition and appropriate management by all members of the interdisciplinary team engaged in the care of patients with brain tumors is essential in optimizing quality of life and extending survival. Recognition of the acute, early delayed, and late complications of brain irradiation is essential to optimize management and mitigate their clinical impact.
