Abstract

Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) is a relatively common disorder in the elderly. Whereas the relationship between polymyalgia rheumatica and giant cell arteritis (GCA) is well recognized, there is still controversy about PMR and malignancy. We are presenting a patient with PMR and adenocarcinoma of the sygmoid colon and hypothesize a paraneoplastic relationship.
