Paraneoplastic syndromes. How to recognize the remote neurologic effects of cancer.

Author information

Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia.


Neurologic paraneoplastic syndromes occur in patients with all forms of malignancy. Their effects on the central and peripheral nervous systems are devastating. A neurologic abnormality may be the first manifestation of malignancy or can occur late in the course of the disease. Early recognition can lead to effective treatment of a paraneoplastic syndrome and a potential cure of the underlying cancer.
