  • Abstract

    The association between cancer chemotherapy and cognitive impairment is well recorded and much sought after. At times, the diagnosis of cancer itself may induce cognitive impairment. The stress experienced by cancer patients after diagnosis or during or after treatment may also result in cognitive impairment. The chemotherapy drugs themselves are stressors that cause adaptive signals and these could limit their clinical values. It is important to skim through the confounding factors and establish a stronger link between chemotherapy and cognitive impairment. This review article is aimed at evaluating the available information on cancer chemotherapy and cognitive impairment.
