Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Malignancy is a possible cause of unexplained encephalitis.

EXEGESIS:

We describe a 59-years-old woman with limbic encephalitis, not explained by other causes, preceding diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease. Successful treatment of Hodgkin's disease was effective against neurological disturbance.

CONCLUSION:

This case provides evidence that Hodgkin's disease can be uncovered by paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis.
