Résumé : A case of diffuse polioencephalitis associated with non-differentiated bronchial carcinoma is reported. Clinically the patient presented mental disturbance and an extra-pyramidal syndrome. Anatomopathological investigation revealed inflammation of the cerebral hemispheres and the brain stem. Similar involvement of other regions of the central nervous system has been reported in the literature, probably indicating various locations of a single nosological entity. A viral origin is probable but not yet established.
