Oncologic Emergencies and Paraneoplastic Syndromes
This management guide covers the oncologic emergencies such as superior vena cava syndrome, deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and other paraneoplastic syndromes.
An oncologic emergency may be defined as any acute potentially morbid or life-threatening event directly or indirectly related to a patient's tumor or its treatment. The differential diagnosis for a patient with cancer who presents with acute conditions includes medical emergencies not related to the patient's diagnosis of cancer.
