    Paraneoplastic neurological syndromes (PNS) are rare remote effects of cancer that can affect any part of the nervous system. These disorders probably result from an immune reaction against antigens shared by the nervous system and tumor cells. The strongest evidence for that is the...

    Autoimmunity has been suggested as one of the pathophysiologic mechanisms that may underlie complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Screening for antinuclear antibodies (ANA) is one of the diagnostic tests, which is usually performed if a person is suspected to have a systemic autoimmune disease....
