FERNANDA BAHADIAN BARDY MARCELO CAGY FERNANDO POMPEU FILHO JOSÉ EDUARDO LAMARCA MILTON RABINOVITZ JOSÉ MAURÍCIO GODOY About the authors

We report a 40-year-old woman with subacute cerebellar degeneration associated with ovarian cancer. We briefly review the clinical and laboratory features of this syndrome, and emphasize the importance of its prompt recognition, which many times makes possible the early detection and treatment of the primary disorder.
