Abstract

Paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes may develop in Hodgkin's disease (HD). We describe three young female patients with neurological disorders, not explained by other causes, preceding diagnosis or relapse of HD. The lack of response of the paraneoplastic syndrome to successful treatment of HD among our three patients emphasizes the poor prognosis of longstanding paraneoplastic neurologic symptoms in HD.
