We present a patient with gradual development of camptocormia, three years before a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was diagnosed. Lymphomas are known to produce neuromuscular symptoms through several indirect mechanisms. Recent studies regard camptocormia as a primary disease of the paravertebrai muscles. To our knowledge this is the first report associating camptocormia with malignancy. The possibility of a paraneoplastic syndrome is discussed.
