Descripteurs : AB3 - PATHOLOGIE MEDICALE DES MUSCLES

A case of severe action myoclonus after pulmonary arrest is described. Although
there was benefit from oral pharmacotherapy, action myoclonus remained disabling.
A favorable response to baclofen during an intrathecal trial led to eventual
placement of an intrathecal baclofen pump.
The present case illustrates the
potential utility of intrathecal baclofen for treating this condition.
