    Among paraneoplastic neurologic disorders (PND), opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome, so-called "dancing eye syndrome," is a rare disorder combining multivectorial eye movements, involuntary multifocal myoclonus, and cerebellar ataxia. Although several paraneoplastic antibodies against postsynaptic or...
