Objectives: The involvement of the peripheral nervous system by anti-CV2/CRMP5 paraneoplastic antibodies is typically encountered as a mixed sensorimotor polyneuropathy. We report a fatal case of severe chronic progressive axonal polyradiculoneuropathy in association with this antibody. Methods: Review of the patient's chart, nerve conduction/electromyographic studies, and nerve biopsy. Results: A 51-year-old man presented with a progressive quadriparesis over a 4-month period.
