62. Post-hypoxic myoclonus: Differentiating benign and malignant etiologies in diagnosis and prognosis Full Text available with Trip Pro

Post-hypoxic myoclonus: Differentiating benign and malignant etiologies in diagnosis and prognosis Neurological function following cardiac arrest often determines prognosis. Objective tests, including formal neurological examination and neurophysiological testing, are performed to provide medical providers and decision-makers information to help guide care based on the extent of neurologic injury. The demonstration of post-hypoxic myoclonus on examination has been described to portend poor (...) outcome after cardiac arrest, but recent studies have challenged this idea given that different forms of post-hypoxic myoclonus predict disparate prognoses. The presence of myoclonus status epilepticus (MSE) usually signals a poor outcome, especially if generalized. Lance-Adams syndrome (LAS), another form of post-hypoxic myoclonus, carries a better prognosis. Differentiating subtypes of post-hypoxic myoclonus is therefore critical. This can be difficult in the acute setting with clinical examination

64. Improvement of Post-hypoxic Myoclonus with Bilateral Pallidal Deep Brain Stimulation: A Case Report and Review of the Literature Full Text available with Trip Pro

Improvement of Post-hypoxic Myoclonus with Bilateral Pallidal Deep Brain Stimulation: A Case Report and Review of the Literature Post-hypoxic myoclonus (PHM) is a syndrome that occurs when a patient has suffered hypoxic brain injury. The myoclonus is usually multifocal and generalized, often stemming from both cortical and subcortical origins. In severe cases, pharmacological treatments with antiepileptic medications may not satisfactorily control the myoclonus.We present a case of a 23-year (...) -old male with chronic medication refractory PHM following a cardiopulmonary arrest related to an asthmatic attack who improved with bilateral globus pallidus internus (GPi) deep brain stimulation (DBS). We review the clinical features of PHM, as well as the preoperative and postoperative Unified Myoclonus Rating Scale scores and DBS programming parameters in this patient and compare them with the three other published PHM-DBS cases in the literature.This patient experienced an alleviation

Pramipexole Overdose Associated with Visual Hallucinations, Agitation and Myoclonus Pramipexole is a dopamine D2 receptor agonist used to treat idiopathic Parkinson's disease and primary restless legs syndrome. There is limited information on pramipexole overdose.A 59-year-old male ingested 3 mg pramipexole, 2250 mg venlafaxine, 360 mg mirtazapine, with suicidal intent. He presented alert, had normal vital observations and normal pupillary reflexes. He was mildly agitated, reported visual (...) hallucinations and was given 5 mg diazepam. He had a mildly elevated lactate of 1.7 mmol/L, but otherwise normal laboratory investigations. Overnight, he remained agitated with visual hallucinations and developed myoclonus while awake. He had increasing difficulty passing urine on a background of mild chronic urinary retention. On review, 14 h post-ingestion, he was hypervigilant, jittery and mildly agitated. He had pressured speech and difficulty focusing on questioning. He had a heart rate of 110 bpm

66. TUBB2B Mutation in an Adult Patient with Myoclonus-Dystonia Full Text available with Trip Pro

TUBB2B Mutation in an Adult Patient with Myoclonus-Dystonia Tubulin mutations are a cause of neuronal migrational disorders referred to as tubulinopathies. Mutations in tubulin genes can have a severe impact on microtubule function and result in heterogeneous clinical presentations. Current understanding of the clinical spectrum of tubulinopathies is predominantly based on research in fetal tissue and early-childhood cases.Testing of candidate genes followed by whole-exome sequencing (...) pachygyria and dysmorphic basal ganglia. Her neurological examination demonstrated mild cognitive impairment, myoclonus-dystonia, and skeletal anomalies.Here, we report the unique phenotype of an adult TUBB2B mutation carrier. This case illustrates a relatively mild phenotype compared to previously described fetal and early childhood cases. This highlights the importance of obtaining molecular genetic testing in individuals with a high probability of a genetic disease, including undiagnosed adult

68. Spinal Myoclonus Responding to Continuous Intrathecal Morphine Pump Full Text available with Trip Pro

Spinal Myoclonus Responding to Continuous Intrathecal Morphine Pump Spinal myoclonus is a sudden, brief, and involuntary movement of segmental or propriospinal muscle groups. Spinal myoclonus has occasionally been reported in patients undergoing opioid therapy, but the pathophysiology of opioid-induced myoclonus has not been elucidated yet. Here, we present two patients with spinal segmental myoclonus secondary to ischemic and radiation myelopathy. Conventional medications did not help treat (...) persistent myoclonus in both legs. Continuous intrathecal morphine infusion was implanted for pain control in one patient, which relieved spinal myoclonus entirely. This experience led to the application of this method with a second patient, leading to the same gratifying result. Spinal myoclonus reemerged as soon as the morphine pumps were off, which confirmed the therapeutic role of opioids. In contrast to the opioid-induced myoclonus, these cases show a benefit of opioids on spinal myoclonus, which

71. Rapid Resolution of Enterovirus 71-Associated Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome on Intravenous Immunoglobulin Full Text available with Trip Pro

Rapid Resolution of Enterovirus 71-Associated Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome on Intravenous Immunoglobulin Nonparaneoplastic opsoclonus-myoclonus ataxia syndrome is a rare neuroinflammatory condition featured by opsoclonus, myoclonus, ataxia, and cognitive behavioral disturbance. The authors report an observation of enterovirus 71-associated opsoclonus-myoclonus ataxia syndrome evolving toward full recovery on intravenous intravenous immunoglobulin (IG) treatment. Based on this case report (...) , enterovirus 71 should be added to the list of infectious agents likely involved in opsoclonus-myoclonus ataxia syndrome, including the emerging subgroup of opsoclonus-myoclonus ataxia syndrome recovering without aggressive or prolonged immunosuppressive intervention. Further studies are mandatory to define the precise role, incidence, treatment, and outcome of enterovirus 71 and other infectious agents in benign forms of opsoclonus-myoclonus ataxia syndrome.

74. Classification of Involuntary Movements in Dogs: Myoclonus and Myotonia Full Text available with Trip Pro

Classification of Involuntary Movements in Dogs: Myoclonus and Myotonia Myoclonus is a sudden brief, involuntary muscle jerk. Of all the movement disorders, myoclonus is the most difficult to encapsulate into any simple framework. On the one hand, a classification system is required that is clinically useful to aid in guiding diagnosis and treatment. On the other hand, there is need for a system that organizes current knowledge regarding biological mechanisms to guide scientific research (...) . These 2 needs are distinct, making it challenging to develop a robust classification system suitable for all purposes. We attempt to classify myoclonus as "epileptic" and "nonepileptic" based on its association with epileptic seizures. Myotonia in people may be divided into 2 clinically and molecularly defined forms: (1) nondystrophic myotonias and (2) myotonic dystrophies. The former are a group of skeletal muscle channelopathies characterized by delayed skeletal muscle relaxation. Many distinct

75. A Rare Instance of Levofloxacin Induced Myoclonus Full Text available with Trip Pro

A Rare Instance of Levofloxacin Induced Myoclonus Levofloxacin is a widely used fluoroquinolone, mainly as a respiratory antimicrobial agent. It is employed as a second line therapeutic modality in pulmonary tuberculosis as well. The drug has been in use for ages, and is known to be both efficacious and safe. However, it is not free of adverse effects. The most dangerous ones are those involving the Central Nervous System (CNS). Although rare, levofloxacin can cause involuntary movements like (...) chorea and myoclonus. Here by, we present a case of an elderly male patient who developed reversible myoclonus/chorea after a course of levofloxacin (which was initiated as part of his anti-tubercular therapy) following the development of peripheral neuropathy secondary to isoniazid.

76. Thymoma-associated Progressive Encephalomyelitis with Rigidity and Myoclonus (PERM) with Myasthenia Gravis Full Text available with Trip Pro

Thymoma-associated Progressive Encephalomyelitis with Rigidity and Myoclonus (PERM) with Myasthenia Gravis We report a case of a 72-year-old woman who initially presented with symptoms of bulbar myasthenia and was positive for anti-acetylcholine receptor antibodies. She subsequently developed painful muscle spasms, myoclonus, and stiffness. Thymoma was detected, and both anti-glycine receptor and anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies were found. She was diagnosed with thymoma-associated (...) progressive encephalomyelitis with rigidity and myoclonus (PERM). She experienced marked improvement after thymectomy followed by plasma exchange and intravenous immunoglobulin and prednisolone. This case suggests that thymectomy followed by sufficient immunosuppression may be useful in the treatment of thymoma-associated PERM. Myasthenia gravis may develop in thymoma-associated PERM patients.

77. The Inter-rater Variability of Clinical Assessment in Post-anoxic Myoclonus Full Text available with Trip Pro

The Inter-rater Variability of Clinical Assessment in Post-anoxic Myoclonus Acute post-anoxic myoclonus (PAM) can be divided into an unfavorable (generalized/subcortical) and more favorable ((multi)focal/cortical) outcome group that could support prognostication in post-anoxic encephalopathy; however, the inter-rater variability of clinically assessing these PAM subtypes is unknown.We prospectively examined PAM patients using a standardized video protocol. Videos were rated by three (...) neurologists who classified PAM phenotype (generalized/(multi)focal), stimulus sensitivity, localization (proximal/distal/both), and severity (Clinical Global Impression-Severity Scale (CGI-S) and Unified Myoclonus Rating Scale (UMRS)).Poor inter-rater agreement was found for phenotype and stimulus sensitivity (κ=-0.05), moderate agreement for localization (κ=0.46). Substantial agreement was obtained for the CGI-S (intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC)=0.64) and almost perfect agreement for the UMRS

Contrast induced spinal myoclonus after percutaneous coronary intervention We present a case of a 77-year-old man diagnosed with contrast-induced spinal myoclonus following primary percutaneous coronary intervention. After being admitted with a diagnosis of anteroseptal myocardial infarction, he underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention to the left anterior descending artery and was prescribed aspirin, clopidogrel, and intravenous heparin. The following day he developed non (...) -intentional irregular jerky movements confined to the truncal area. In view of rhythmic jerking confined to muscles innervated by a restricted segment of the spinal cord, resistance to supra-spinal influences and voluntary action, and no preceding electroencephalography activity in the contralateral sensorimotor cortex, a diagnosis of spinal myoclonus was made. Spinal myoclonus is a rare entity in which myoclonic movements occur in muscles originating from few (segmental), or many adjacent spinal motor
