Abstract

Anti-Ma2-associated encephalitis is one of the paraneoplastic limbic and brainstem encephalitis characterized by decreased consciousness, parkinsonism and the limitation of vertical eye movement. It is usually associated with non-small cell lung cancer in male and female or germ cell tumor in male. Herein, we report a case of atypical anti-Ma2-associated encephalitis which presented with axonal sensorimotor polyneuropathy.
