Description

This book attempts a comprehensive review of paraneoplastic syndromes from considering both clinical and pathophysiologic aspects.

Paraneoplastic syndromes, defined in this book as ""disorders caused by cancer, but not a direct result of cancer invasion of the affected organ or tissue"", once believed to be rare and esoteric neurologic disorders have assumed increasing importance as an explanation of neurologic and other symptoms in patients suffered from occult or controllable cancers.
