  • Updated Review and Treatment Recommendations on Paraneoplastic Neurologic Syndromes and Chronic Pain. [Review]
    Pain Physician. 2019 09; 22(5):433-445.Blyakhman I, Chakravarthy K
  • CONCLUSIONS: By providing a unified review across disciplines, we illustrate that neuropathic pain related to the systemic secretion of cytokines may represent another category of paraneoplastic neurological syndromes distinct from the well-known autoimmune neuronopathies. In addition, we discuss the clinical significance of distinguishing autoimmune paraneoplastic pain syndromes from those related to systemic cytokine secretion and highlight the need for further research at the intersection of these fields. This review takes a look at both past and current literature with a critical analysis of findings and respective recommendations. In addition, based on review of the literature we provide updated therapeutic recommendations for the consideration of pain practitioners when dealing with this patient population.
