Myoclonus and adult coeliac disease
- 25 Downloads
A 56-year-old woman with coeliac disease developed myoclonus of cortical origin and palatal myoclonus with lesions of subcortical white matter on magnetic resonance imaging. Myoclonus can thus be a prominent feature of coeliac disease encephalopathy. A slight vitamin E deficiency was found but does not satisfactorily explain this myoclonic encephalopathy, which remains of unknown origin.
