The authors report a case of a 65-year-old woman with small cell lung cancer who had profound, progressive lower extremity weakness, intermittent blurred vision, a dry mouth, and orthostatic hypotension. Results of laboratory and electrodiagnostic studies were consistent with the diagnosis of Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome. The patient was treated with one course of intravenous immunoglobulin and had significant improvement.
