Neuropsychological symptoms may rarely be part of a paraneoplastic neurological syndrome, mainly as limbic encephalitis. As the tumour will not be known in most patients upon presentation to the neurologists, state-of-the art diagnosis including the use of anti-neuronal antibodies and FDG-PET is essential for adequate management of these patients.
