Abstract

As the incidence of brain tumors increases, the rehabilitation needs of these persons are becoming more prominent. This focused review of the pathophysiology, treatments, and complications associated with brain tumors and radiotherapy and chemotherapy will serve as a resource to physiatrists and other rehabilitation personnel serving this population. The present literature on functional impairments and rehabilitation interventions is critically reviewed, and areas requiring additional research are highlighted.
