Paraneoplastic syndromes are the rarest neurological complications in patients with cancer. The neurological paraneoplastic syndromes that are mainly associated with breast cancer are subacute cerebellar degeneration, paraneoplastic retinopathy, opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome, lower motor neuron diseases and Stiffman syndrome. The aim of this paper is to briefly outline these paraneoplastic neurological syndromes and consider their relation to breast carcinoma. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
