The combination of symptoms, MRI findings and paraneoplastic antibodies established the diagnosis of PLE in 78% of the patients, and treatment of the tumour appeared to have more effect on the neurological outcome than the use of immune modulation.
Diagnosis and treatment of leptomeningeal metastases from solid tumors: Experience with 90 patients
It is concluded that vigorous treatment of leptomeningeal metastases with intrathecal chemotherapeutic agents improves symptomatology in some patients, and at times prolongs survival.
Paraneoplastic syndromes involving the nervous system.
Paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes are incited by a tumor outside the nervous system that produces a characteristic antigen of the nervous System that damages nerve tissue and inhibits growth of the tumor.
The diagnosis of stupor and coma.
The third edition retains its approach to that art of diagnosis based on the understanding of pathophysiology and pathobiochemistry, but the authors have included new references and illustrations.
Clinical analysis of anti-Ma2-associated encephalitis.
Anti-Ma2 encephalitis (with or without anti-Ma1 antibodies) should be suspected in patients with limbic, diencephalic or brainstem dysfunction, MRI abnormalities in these regions, and inflammatory changes in the CSF.
Epidural spinal cord compression from metastatic tumor: Diagnosis and treatment
It is concluded that RT without decompressive laminectomy is as effective as decompressive Laminectomy in treating epidural spinal cord compression from systemic cancer.

Fifty patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome had complications affecting the central or peripheral nervous systems or both. The patients were either male homosexuals, intravenous drug…
Distribution of brain metastases.
The data suggest that the high incidence of subtentorial lesions in patients with pelvic and gastrointestinal primary tumors cannot be explained by arterial embolization alone, and that this peculiar distribution is probably not explained by seeding of the brain through Batson's plexus.
Brachial plexus lesions in patients with cancer=100 cases
In patients with cancer, brachial plexus signs are usually caused by tumor infiltration or injury from radiation therapy (RT), and painful lower trunk lesions with Horner syndrome imply tumor infiltration.
Small-cell lung cancer, paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration and the Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome.
Several cancers, especially lung, ovarian and breast, can cause paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration. The presence of different antineuronal antibodies associated with different cancers and…
