Oncologic emergencies can relate either to the cancer itself or its treatment. As the number of cancer patients receiving treatment is increasing and the number of clinicians encountering emergencies is rising, optimal outcomes in these patients relies on the recognition of early symptoms and signs and the implementation of appropriate therapy.
This book covers the broad spectrum of oncologic emergencies in the major systems ranging from cardiovascular emergencies to neurological emergencies, bone problems through to acute pain and psychiatric problems. The acute infectious and haematological emergencies, which are extremely common and life-threatening, are dealt with in detail. Each chapter provides a background to complications and clearly outlines the modern approach to treatment. For ease of reference the book contains algorithms as guidelines for the management of various emergency situations which will be of use to the practising clinician.
Written by an international team of experts, Oncologic Emergencies provides clear, accessible guidelines to ensure effective and immediate treatment and management. This book is aimed at trainees in oncology and practising oncologists, and will also appeal to family doctors, specialist nurses and individuals working in emergency medicine.

Spanish literature is one of the major European literatures, with an extensive array of canonical and important writers from the Middle Ages to the present. Because Spain was a crossroads of Christian, Jewish, and Islamic cultures, its cultural traditions weave together issues related to homoerotic practices and beliefs from these diverse origins. Homoeroticism, as a consequence, has always been a highly charged issue for Spain. But only since the return to a constitutional society after the death of Franco in 1975 and the international growth of interest in queer issues has it been possible to establish a reliable history of homoeroticism in Spanish culture.

The volume presents entries for more than 50 Spanish writers, such as Federico Garcia Lorca, Ignatius of Loyola, Juan de la Cruz, Miguel de Unamuno, Maria de Zayas, and Esther Tusqueto. The writers included fall chiefly into two groups: those of the canon whose works contain elements of interest to an agenda of sexual dissidence, and those who constitute a lesbigay inventory for contemporary Spain. Included are those writers whose works are of interest to lesbigay scholarship, regardless of whether the writers themselves were lesbigay. The volume also includes entries for several Spanish cultural figures such as filmmaker Pedro Almodovar and painter Salvador Dali, who were not writers but nonetheless inform the homoerotic background of Spanish writing and culture. Entries are arranged alphabetically and are written by expert contributors. Each includes a brief biographical profile, a discussion of gay and lesbian themes in the writer's works, and a bibliography. The volume
