Abstract

Numerous malignancies may be associated with musculoskeletal symptoms. In paraneoplastic syndromes, the rheumatic disease is related to the tumour development and the removal or treatment of the underlying malignancy results in the improvement of rheumatic symptoms. Sometimes it is the bad responsiveness of the rheumatic disease to conventional therapies that calls the attention to an underlying malignant condition. Therefore, in case of an unusual disease course a thorough search for malignancies is indicated. The authors give a thematic review on the most common paraneoplastic rheumatic syndromes and discuss the general diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines.
