Abstract:
Pancreatic cancer is a common malignancy with a poor prognosis. While metastases from pancreatic cancer are a frequent occurrence, neurological involvement is relatively rare. Here, we present the case of a 50-year-old male with metastatic pancreatic cancer who, several months after his diagnosis, presented with diplopia and a left ptosis. Subsequent investigations revealed that the patient had developed leptomeningeal carcinomatosis. As this is a rare presentation, the purpose of this report was to document this unusual case of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis secondary to pancreatic cancer and examine other cases found in the literature.
