dc.description.abstractParaneoplastic arthritides are a group of inflammatory rheumatic syndromes induced by an occult and manifest malignancy, characterized by a wide range of musculoskeletal signs and symptoms that masquerade other rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Although the pathogenesis of paraneoplastic arthritides is unknown, immune-mediated mechanisms can induce a paraneoplastic syndrome, with a dominant feature the polyarthritis. Common entities of paraneoplastic arthritides include paraneoplastic polyarthritis, hypertrophic osteoarthropathy, remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema, palmar fasciitis and polyarthritis, and polyarthritis and panniculitis associated with pancreatic carcinoma. The electronic databases PubMed and Scopus were scrutinized using the following terms: paraneoplastic arthritis, paraneoplastic polyarthritis, or paraneoplastic rheumatic diseases. Abstracts, full articles, and selected references were reviewed. The aim of the present narrative review article was to describe the clinical characteristics, diagnostic evaluation, and management of paraneoplastic arthritides, and highlight the challenges that health care providers may encounter, distinguishing those conditions from other autoimmune rheumatic disorders. Future studies are needed to give insight into the mechanisms associated with paraneoplastic arthritides, leading to the development of novel diagnostic biomarkers.en
