Paraneoplastic Syndromes

Paraneoplastic syndromes are rare disorders that are triggered by an altered immune system response to a neoplasm. They are defined as clinical syndromes involving nonmetastatic systemic effects that accompany malignant disease. These set of signs and symptoms are due to the mass effect and not due to the local presence of cancer cells. These syndromes are collections of symptoms that result from substances that are produced by the tumour, and they occur remotely from the tumour itself where the symptoms may be:

  • Endocrine

  • Hematologic
