    Introduction. Paraneoplastic encephalomyelitis (PEM) and subacute sensory neuronopathy (SSN) are remote effects of cancer, usually associated with small-cell lung carcinoma and positive anti-Hu antibody. We describe the rare association of bladder transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) with anti-Hu...

    Paraneoplastic encephalomyelitis (PEM) is a form of neurological dysfunction caused by the remote effect of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) on the brain. In certain cases it is associated with the presence of Anti-Hu antibodies. Up to 65% of patients with SCLC and PEM, who have Anti-Hu antibodies...

    Serial samples, spanning an observation period of 4 to 10 years, from five patients with anti-Hu associated paraneoplastic neurological syndromes (PNS) were investigated with an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) employing recombinant HuD protein as antigen. In one patient the anti-Hu...

    Paraneoplastic neurological anti-Hu syndrome is one of the most frequent remote effects of cancer and usually manifests as encephalomyelitis combined with peripheral neuropathy. Subacute sensory neuronopathy, which results from the inflammatory destruction of sensory neurone cell bodies in the...

    Anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody (rituximab) is effectively used in the treatment of B-cell lymphomas. Recent reports in the literature suggest that antibody associated autoimmune disorders may respond to rituximab. We therefore treated nine patients with anti-Hu or anti-Yo associated...

    Background Anti-Hu and anti-Ri antibodies are paraneoplastic immunoglobulin (Ig)G autoantibodies which recognize cytoplasmic and nuclear antigens present in all neurons. Although both antibodies produce similar immunohistological labeling, they recognize different neuronal proteins. Both...

    Synopsis: Clinical criteria for sensory neuronopathy can reliably separate this syndrome from more distal, axonal syndromes. SENSORY NEURONOPATHY OR GANGLIONOPATHY MAY BE idiopathic, but also presents as a paraneoplastic syndrome, or in association with Sjogren's syndrome, HIV infection, or...
