Neuroendocrine carcinomas of the bladder (small cell, large cell, typical and atypical carcinoids) are rare and usually co exist with urothelial carcinoma. As in small cell carcinoma of the lung, various paraneoplastic neurologic disorders can occur although they are even less frequent. Here we report the case of a 63 year old man with small cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder and with a paraneoplastic neurologic disorder. © 2013 The Authors.
