Abstract

We report a case with squamous cell lung cancer with concomitant Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) as a paraneoplastic syndrome. A 67-year-old patient who was previously diagnosed as metastatic squamous cell lung cancer developed mild symmetrical weakness, paresthesia and sensory ataxia. Nerve conduction study showed sensorimotor polyneuropathy. Analysis of cerebrospinal fluid showed high tilter for monospecific anti-GD1b IgG antibody without onconeuronal antibodies. After treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin, the patient's symptoms improved.
