Abstract

Acquired neuromyotonia is characterized by hyperexcitability of motor nerves resulting in continuous muscle fiber activity. It occurs most often as aparaneoplastic syndrome in patients with cancers of the immune system. Antibodies against voltage-gated potassium channels (VGKGs) have been detectedin some patients. Peripheral neuropathy is sometimes present. We report ona patient with Hodgkin's lymphoma in complete remission who developed paresthesias followed by neuromyotonia with bulbar involvement. Peripheral sensorimotor neuropathy was diagnosed electrophysiologically and evidence of axonal degeneration and demyelination was detected by sural nerve biopsy. Thepatient's complaints, including dysarthria, improved after carbamazepine treatment. (C) 2001 John Wiiey & Sons, Inc.
