pneumoniae, Epstein-Barr virus, and paraneoplastic
antibodies and cytology were negative.
Although Sweet syndrome is uncommon, even in dermatology practice, its head and neck and oral manifestations and its association with paraneoplastic
disease warrant the need for otolaryngologists to be aware of the condition.
Since 2010, the Interlaken Leadership Awards has awarded over $5 million in grants and/or study drug for research studying Ig therapy in areas such as neuromyelitis optica (NMO), Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), paraneoplastic
syndromes, autoimmune peripheral neuropathies, and Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS).
Initial evaluation of the patient with lung cancer: symptoms, signs, laboratory tests, and paraneoplastic
One theory is that DM and ADM represent paraneoplastic
syndromes, where factors from a pre-existing tumour trigger an inflammatory or immune-mediated response leading to cutaneous manifestations, with or without the myopathy.
In less than 1% of cancer patients, an autoimmune response develops that targets normal neural tissues, which is termed paraneoplastic
neurologic syndrome (PNS) (1, 2).
This most serious form of pemphigus is paraneoplastic
She was hospitalized in order to find out whether it was reactive arthritis or a reflection of a paraneoplastic
Studies commonly showed that cancer- associated DM is a paraneoplastic
3,5,6,10,11) The other causes are neurologic (multiple sclerosis and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, for example), traumatic, infectious (such as human T-lymphotrophic virus-1, HIV, tuberculosis, and syphilis), vascular (acute spinal cord infarction), nutritional deficiencies (copper and Vitamin B12, for example), and paraneoplastic
causes--those who have collapsing response mediator protein 5 (CRMP5) also known as CV2 in particular (5,6); ampiphysin-IgG, which is known to be commonly associated with small cell lung cancer and breast cancer, had reportedly been detected in the sera of patients with rapidly progressive myelopathy and LETM on imaging.
The 46-year-old has paraneoplastic
neurological disorder - a condition of the nervous system that was brought on by an undetected cancer - and he has been in intensive care at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary for the last 10 months.
