Heading: Тhematic supplement Article type: Case report

The article presents a rare case of a combination of two paraneoplastic syndromes at the stage of preclinical detection of neoplasm. This example is a vivid illustration of the complexity of the diagnosis of paraneoplastic syndromes at an early stage, associated with the appearance of neurological symptoms prior the detection of the primary tumor.
