Summaries for Paraneoplastic Syndromes

NINDS : 53 Paraneoplastic syndromes are a group of rare disorders that are triggered by an abnormal immune system response to a cancerous tumor known as a "neoplasm." Paraneoplastic syndromes are thought to happen when cancer-fighting antibodies or white blood cells (known as T cells) mistakenly attack normal cells in the nervous system. These disorders typically affect middle-aged to older people and are most common in individuals with lung, ovarian, lymphatic, or breast cancer. Neurologic symptoms generally develop over a period of days to weeks and usually occur prior to the tumor being discovered. These symptoms may include difficulty in walking or swallowing, loss of muscle tone, loss of fine motor coordination, slurred speech, memory loss, vision problems, sleep disturbances, dementia, seizures, sensory loss in the limbs, and vertigo or dizziness. Paraneoplastic syndromes include Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome, stiff-person syndrome, encephalomyelitis, myasthenia gravis, cerebellar degeneration, limbic or brainstem encephalitis, neuromyotonia, opsoclonus, and sensory neuropathy.

MalaCards based summary : Paraneoplastic Syndromes is related to poems syndrome and peritonitis, and has symptoms including paraneoplastic opsoclonus ataxia An important gene associated with Paraneoplastic Syndromes is RCVRN (Recoverin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers. The drugs Denosumab and Calcium have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, breast and t cells, and related phenotypes are integument and renal/urinary system
