Some epidemiological surveys have shown an increased incidence of malignancies in patients with multiple Sclerosis (MS). Furthermore, in rare cases central demyelinating disorders like optic neuritis, encephalomyelitis, and myelitis could be of paraneoplastic origin. Antineuronal antibodies are frequently associated with paraneoplastic neurological syndromes (PNS) but are also described in cancer patients without neurological symptoms. In this study, we retrospectively analyzed sera from 247… CONTINUE READING
