Part Description

LP31709-6   Purkinje cell cytoplasmic type Tr
Purkinje cell cytoplasmic-Tr (PCA-Tr) antibodies are associated with Hodgkin's lymphoma. The clinical presentation that corresponds with PCA-Tr antibodies includes paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) and limbic encephalopathy (LE).[PMID:22412264] PCD and LE are types of paraneoplastic neurological syndrome (PNS), an autoimmune disorder that is manifested by progressive neurological syndromes of any combination of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems. The antibodies that attack the neural tissue develop in response to tumor cells. The neurological symptoms include encephalitis, autonomic failure, peripheral neuropathy, cerebellar ataxia, visual complaints and more. The neoplasm may or may not be detectable using conventional imaging modalities. Since PNS can be associated with multiple antibodies, testing usually includes a panel of PNS antibodies. In addition, the different PNS antibodies are associated with certain cancers so the antibody pattern can assist in identifying the specific tumor if it was previously undiagnosed.[PMID:22412264] Source: Regenstrief LOINC, Cytoplasmic
