  • In animals with cancer, clinical signs that are not directly related to local or distant spread of the tumor are considered paraneoplastic.

  • Reported paraneoplastic disorders in horses with lymphoma include fever, hypercalcemia, and anemia.

  • Paraneoplastic pruritus and alopecia can develop in people with lymphoma; furthermore, lymphoma should be considered in the differential diagnoses when examining horses with generalized pruritus for which another cause cannot be identified.
