Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Neuro-oncology encompasses a broad field focusing on an array of neoplasms, many of which can mimic several diseases. Neurologists will often be involved in the initial diagnostic evaluation and management of these patients. Their insight is central to optimizing the diagnostic yield and providing high-level clinical care. Several neuro-oncologic cases are reviewed with a goal of increasing the understanding of these diseases in a clinically relevant manner and providing updates on the contemporary thinking in the subspecialty.
