    Abstract

    Following chemotherapy with cis-diamminedichloroplatinum II (cisplatin) three patients developed Lhermitte's sign and peripheral neuropathy. The toxic side effects did not become apparent until after treatment had ceased. Because of increasing use of cisplatin to achieve lasting remission in patients with malignant disease proprioceptive and myelopathic side effects may become increasingly common.
