Case report: Schizophrenia and hypertrophic osteoarthropathy, a rare
syndrome hiding a life-threatening condition
Schizophrenia is associated to somatic disorders especially
cardio-vascular and auto-immune. Through this case report, we describe
an association with hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (HPO). For this
patient it was a paraneoplastic paraneoplastic syndrome secondary to
lung cancer. This syndrome is rare but important to recognize since it
could hide a life-threatening condition.
