Abstract:

Paraneoplastic neurologic syndrome is a group of disorders resulting from damage to the nervous system in carcinoma, remote from primary site and not due to metastasis, infection, or metabolic complication associated with cancer. Patient with small cell lung cancer sometimes shows various paraneoplastic neurological syndromes, but patient with non-small cell lung cancer rarely shows paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes. Here we wish to report a case of 65-year-old female presented to our clinic with isolated right sided hypoglossal nerve palsy and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of lung.

Keywords:

Paraneoplastic; Non-small cell lung carcinoma; Hypoglossal nerve
