Abstract

Eaton-Lambert or myasthenic syndrome was diagnosed in a young woman with recurrent small-cell carcinoma of the cervix. Therapy with vincristine, doxorubicin, and cyclo-phosphamide resulted in a partial response of the tumor and marked improvement in neurologic symptoms. Diagnosis and treatment of this paraneoplastic syndrome are discussed.
