CASADA, Victoria et al. Sensory ganglionopathy. Clinical case and review of the bibliography. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2022, vol.7, n.2, pp.65-72.  Epub July 01, 2022. ISSN 2393-6797.

Sensory ganglionopathies are a rare group of sensory neuropathies that can be associated with neoplasms such as bronchopulmonary cancer. Its clinical presentation and electrical study result are characteristic. Treatment depends on the underlying cause, its timely finding being essential, since early onset impacts the patient's prognosis. We report the case of a patient who presented with atypical distribution paresthesias, neuropathic pain, and ataxia. The electrical study revealed a sensitive ganglionopathy, from whose etiological study arises the diagnosis of bronchopulmonary carcinoma.

Keywords : Sensory ganglionopathy; bronchopulmonary carcinoma; paraneoplastic.
