Trousseau syndrome with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma in a 59-year-old woman

Takeaway

  • Active endovascular treatment and radical resection should be considered in patients with Trousseau syndrome and malignant tumors.

Why this matters

  • Trousseau syndrome generally produces neurological symptoms that are associated with latent malignant tumors. Its prognosis is poor, especially if the lower extremities, lung, brain, heart, kidneys, or spleen are affected.

  • Curative therapy for Trousseau syndrome involves tumor resection, but this may not be possible in patients with advanced cancer.
