Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Paraneoplastic syndromes (PNSs) are rare disorders which are triggered by an altered immune system response to a neoplasm. Although prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common urological malignancy associated with PNSs, literature is lacking in defining the cases representing different PNSs in PCa. Herein, we present a 50-year-old man with fulminant distal phalangeal necrosis in the lower extremities after a diagnosis of PCa. Additionally, we review the literature in light of this case. © 2013 S. Karger AG, Basel.
