Of interest to practicing pathologists,…

Differential Diagnosis in Neuro-oncologyMost neurological lesions in cancer patients are progressive, have a profound influence on the quality of life and can be fatal. Management of the situation requires rapid identification of the nature and location of the problem as the treatment outcome depends as much on the speed of diagnosis as on the subsequent therapy. While modern neuroimages provides invaluable clues to the diagnosis, they need to be interpreted in the light of clinical data. The clinical examination remains the corner…
