This chapter will focus on two intracranial neoplasms of increasing prominence: cerebral metastases and lymphoma.
Cerebral metastases are the most common form of intracranial tumor. Although metastases usually convey a poor prognosis, their timely diagnosis and treatment can often palliate neurologic symptoms, prevent progression of brain disease and, less frequently, prolong patient survival. As the efficacy of treatment of systemic disease improves, cerebral metastases will become more prevalent and therapy for cerebral metastases will have an increasing impact on patient survival.
