Description

Oncologic Emergencies and Paraneoplastic Syndromes. Oncologic emergencies are a realm of veterinary oncology that can be divided into treatment related and tumor related emergencies. Veterinary professionals should be prepared to evaluate patient emergency status and interpret between tumor and treatment related emergencies, as they are often handled differently with varying potential outcomes. Treatment related emergencies can be secondary to chemotherapy administration and radiation therapy treatments, which are two of the main treatment modalities in veterinary oncology. Paraneoplastic syndromes are a potential emergency that is often related to a specific tumor type. Understanding and properly identifying PNS in emergency patients can often aid in diagnosis and stabilization of the patient.
