Paraneoplastic Syndromes in Ophthalmology (French version of the article).
[Paraneoplastic Syndromes in Ophthalmology (French version of the article)]. J Fr Ophtalmol. 2018 Jun 09;: Authors: Bussat A, Langner-Lemercier S, Salmon A, Mouriaux F Abstract Paraneoplastic syndromes involving the visual system are a heterogeneous group of disorders occurring in the setting of systemic malignancy. Although these syndromes are rare, the clinical manifestations can herald an unsuspected, underlying malignancy. The associated antibodies and histopathology of each syndrome are presented to help in the understanding of these autoimmune phenomena. Outlined in this review article are diagnostic features useful in differentiating cancer-associated retinopathy, melanoma-associated retinopathy, paraneoplastic polymorphous vitelliform maculopathy, bilateral diffuse uveal melanocytic proliferation and paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes such as optic neuropathy, opsoclonus-myoclonus, Lambert-Eaton myasthenia and paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration.

Conclusion: If otologic manifestations such as facial palsy and hearing loss are presented in patients at advanced stages of malignancy, TBM of primary malignancy should be suspected. In addition, hematologic malignancies tend to metastasize to the external auditory canal and the middle ear cleft more commonly than solid cancers do.

By CHARLES SILVER and DAVID A.HYMAN Today THCB is happy to publish a piece reflecting the learnings from Charles Silver and David Hyman’s forthcoming book Overcharged: Why Americans Pay Too Much For Health Care, shortly to be published by the libertarian leaning Cato Institute. In subsequent weeks we’ll feature commentary from the right (Michael Cannon) and from the left (Andy Slavitt) about the book and its proposals. For now please give your views in the comments–Matthew Holt There are many reasons why the United States is “the most expensive place in the world to get sick.” In Par...
Authors: Bussat A, Langner-Lemercier S, Salmon A, Mouriaux F Abstract Paraneoplastic syndromes involving the visual system are a heterogeneous group of disorders occurring in the setting of systemic malignancy. They are unrelated to local tumor invasion or metastasis and unexplained by nutritional, metabolic, infectious or iatrogenic causes. The presence of antibodies may aid in the diagnosis of a paraneoplastic syndrome, although this is not an absolute requirement. Chorioretinal involvement is seen in CAR (cancer-associated retinopathy) syndrome, MAR (melanoma-associated retinopathy) syndrome, paraneoplastic vite...
