Suppression of cortical myoclonus by levetiracetam

Authors


Abstract

A 16-year-old boy suffered severely disabling posthypoxic myoclonus. Neurophysiological investigation showed cortical but not reticular reflex myoclonus. Add-on therapy with levetiracetam significantly improved the patient's clinical condition, suppressed cortical myoclonus-associated spikes, and enabled further neurorehabilitation. © 2002 Movement Disorder Society.
