Clinical Dutch-English Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) tumor association prediction score accurately predicts small-cell lung cancer in the LEMS.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Approximately one half of patients with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) have small-cell lung carcinomas (SCLC), aggressive tumors with poor prognosis.
