Interictal myoclonus with paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia

Authors


Abstract

We report a new association between interictal myoclonus and paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD) in 2 patients. By definition, PKD is transient, but the overexcitability of the neuronal system that induces these attacks may be permanent. Interictal myoclonus could be a manifestation of permanent overexcitability. © 2006 Movement Disorder Society
