This case report accounts the history of a 71-year-old man who presented with a 1-month history of cognitive decline, the diagnosis of which was only made at post-mortem, and was found to be paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis secondary to an unsuspected non-small cell lung cancer. The epidemiology, clinical and pathological features of paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis are then discussed, as are potential mechanisms by which the condition may be produced.
