Several antineuronal antibodies are associated with paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration. Anti-Ri is one of these antibodies in some cases but it is more commonly associated with paraneoplastic opsoclonus myoclonus in the context of gynecological neoplasia. Anti-Ri autoantibodies are thought to be directed against onconeural antigens, NOVA-1 and NOVA-2, that are expressed by the tumor as well as by neurons. The results of the treatment of both syndromes have been disappointing, although… CONTINUE READING
