This is a
list of major and frequently observed neurological disorders, symptoms, signs
and syndromes. There is disagreement over the definitions and criteria used to
delineate various disorders and whether some of these conditions should be
classified as mental disorders or in other ways.
Recent medical advances have
improved the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of paraneoplastic
syndromes. These disorders arise from tumor secretion of hormones, peptides, or
cytokines or from immune cross-reactivity between malignant and normal tissues.
Paraneoplastic syndromes may affect diverse organ systems, most notably the
endocrine, neurologic, dermatologic, rheumatologic, and hematologic systems.
