AN AUTOPSY CASE OF CARCINOMA OF THE LUNG ASSOCIATED WITH SUBACUTE CEREBELLAR DEGENERATION AND EATON-LAMBERT SYNDROME

The following is a report of an autopsy case of rare occurrence of small cell anaplastic carcinoma of the lung associated with subacute cerebellar degeneration and Eaton-Lambert syndrome. The patient was a 55-year-old man who developed rapidly progressive ataxia and dysarthria. Physical examination revealed carcinoma of the lung and Eaton-Lambert syndrome in addition to cerebellar symptoms and signs. At autopsy cerebellar degeneration was found to be restricted only to the paleocerebellum, different from other cases with subacute cerebellar degeneration as a remote effect of malignant neoplasms.
