Abstract

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.
