Abstract

A patient with alcohol-sensitive spontaneous, action- and stimulus-sensitive generalized reflex myoclonus is reported. Gait was abnormal but could not be clearly classified as dystonic. No other neurological abnormality was present. The possible relationship between alcohol-sensitive myoclonic dystonic and this case is discussed. Reflex myoclonus may serve as an additional clinical marker in the study of families with alcohol-sensitive myoclonus, dystonic, or both.
