Their topics include non-small cell lung cancer, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, sarcomas and malignancies of the bone, oncological emergencies and paraneoplastic
syndrome, and basic principles of radiation oncology.
6] Limbic encephalitis is a rare paraneoplastic
syndrome which is associated with cancer.
anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor encephalitis associated with ovarian teratoma.
Erythrocytosis is a well-recognized paraneoplastic
syndrome associated with RCC; however, erythrocytosis due to pazopanib therapy has only recently been described.
1) Although Basex syndrome remains a rare paraneoplastic
manifestation, psoriasiform lesions occurring in a smoking and drinking patient must lead to the suspicion of an aerodigestive tract neoplasia and could require an ENT consultation.
Auto-immune blistering diseases include pemphigus vulgaris, paraneoplastic
pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, cicatricial pemphigoid, dermatitis herpetiformis, and linear IgA dermatosis.
2) Differential diagnosis of NL includes leptomeningeal lymphomatosis, nerve damage by herpes zoster or enlarged lymph nodes, chemotherapy or radiation plexopathy, and lymphoma associated vasculitis and paraneoplastic
Doxycycline was initiated, and serologic tests were conducted for Bartonella, Borrelia, Coxiella, and Anaplasma species and for Powassan virus, JCV, and SSHV; tests were also conducted to rule out paraneoplastic
process and autoimmune causes.
9) Ophthalmoplegia with normal MRI may occur via paraneoplastic
encephalomyelitis and leptomeningeal metastasis (lymphomatous meningitis).
Similarly, the recently discovered paraneoplastic
encephalitis caused by an ovarian teratoma that secretes antibodies to the NMDA receptor produces acute psychosis, seizures, delirium, dyskinesia, headache, bizarre behavior, confusion, paranoia, auditory and visual hallucinations, and cognitive deficits.
The VGCC antibody level was elevated (321 pmol/L), and work-up for paraneoplastic
conditions was negative.
glomerulonephritides are glomerular lesions that are not directly related to tumour burden, invasion or metastasis, but rather are induced by products from tumour cells.
