Metastatic chondroblastoma with elevated creatine kinase and paraneoplastic neurologic autoimmunity.

Abstract

A 17-year-old girl presented with chondroblastoma of the fibula and pulmonary metastases. Serum creatine kinase (CK) was elevated for a decade preoperatively and fell to near normal after tumor excision. An episode of aseptic meningitis 3 months later led to serologic detection of three antibody markers of paraneoplastic neurologic autoimmunity that in… (More)
