We report a case of acquired pure red cell aplasia (APRCA) associated with carcinoma of the tongue: the first was considered a rare paraneoplastic syndrome. We point out that there is no case in literature with this association. After surgical operation (subglottic laryngectomy + right lymphadenectomy + laterocervical on the right) the transfusions required, at the beginning very frequent, decreased relevantly. This is a typical case where the paraneoplastic syndrome precedes the diagnosis of the primary carcinoma of the tongue (one year before what happens in bronchogenic carcinoma).
