We are studying patients with paraneoplastic neurologic disorders (The Hu syndrome, a.k.a. Paraneoplastic Subacute Sensory Neuropathy/Encephalomyelitis or Limbic Encephalopathy, and The Ri Syndrome, a.k.a.

One study is aimed at furthering our understanding of the cause of these disorders, and a second is a treatment protocol based on our laboratory studies.

All patients with paraneoplastic neurologic disorders are eligible, including patients with:

  • Paraneoplastic Cerebellar Degeneration
  • The Hu Syndrome
