Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Neurological manifestations of bronchogenic carcinoma were studied in 50 cases, 42% of whom showed neurological abnormalities with 6% having more than one type. Recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis (20%) was the commonest, phrenic nerve paralysis (2%), paraneoplastic syndrome (12%), Pancoast's syndrome (10%) and metastatic involvement of central nervous system (4%) were other neurological manifestations. No evidence of encephalitis, motor neurone disease, myelopathy, Eaton-Lambert syndrome, myositis and drug-induced peripheral neuropathy was found in this study.
