Case Report

Cerebellar Ataxia Followed by Stiff Person Syndrome in a Patient with Anti-GAD Antibodies

Table 1

The evidence of exteroceptive reflexes following the right median nerve stimulation typical of reflex myoclonus as characterised in stiff person syndrome. When the median nerve was stimulated, there was a reflex EMG activity initially seen at rectus abdominis at a latency of 50.52–63.54 ms. Following this, there was rostral to caudal recruitment of the paraspinals (PSP) and sternocleidomastoid (SCM) with latencies of 49.48–91.15 ms.
