[Pulmonary adenocarcinoma and Bazex syndrome (paraneoplastic acrokeratosis)].Arch Bronconeumol. 2007 Jan; 43(1):46-8.AB
Bazex syndrome, or paraneoplastic acrokeratosis, is a rare psoriasis-like paraneoplastic skin disease, characterized by erythema and scaling, which is accompanied by hyperkeratotic lesions. The tumors most frequently associated with Bazex syndrome are squamous cell carcinomas of the upper respiratory and digestive tracts, whereas lung cancers, particularly adenocarcinomas, are rarely associated. We present a case in which both pulmonary adenocarcinoma and Bazex syndrome were present.
