Neurologic complications are a relatively rare complication of gastrointestinal malignancies. In most cases, the complications that result are from direct spread of the individual tumor types to the affected areas of the central or peripheral nervous system. In this chapter, we review the relevant neurologic complications that can be seen in this group of malignancies.
