Abstract

A case of subacute motor neuronopathy in association with thymoma is described. Subacute motor neuronopathy is marked by a painless, progressive, and asymmetric muscle weakness that usually affects the lower extremities. It is a rare paraneoplastic effect of tumors that has been described with both Hodgkin's and non‐Hodgkin's lymphoma. This is the first case report of its association with thymoma.
