Cell-mediated autoimmunity in paraneoplastic neurological syndromes with anti-Hu antibodies.

Abstract

Paraneoplastic encephalomyelitis or subacute sensory neuronopathy associated with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) and high titers of anti-HuD antibodies, also called the "anti-Hu syndrome," is believed to result from an immune response triggered by tumor antigens and misdirected to the neurons.
