The presence of P/Q type voltage gated calcium channel (VGCC) antibodies has been strongly correlated with Lambert Eaton Syndrome (LES), present in 90% of non-immunocompromised patients with LES. However, there have been case reports which have shown its association between paraneoplastic syndrome affecting both central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system causing encephalomyelitis and sensory neuronopathy/neuropathy. We present a case of a young man, who presented with encephalomyelitis, and was further noted to have superimposed cervical polyradiculopathy associated with P/Q type VGCC antibodies.
