Stiff leg syndrome: case report


, : Stiff leg syndrome: case report. Movement Disorders 16(6): 1189-1193

We report on a 28-year-old woman with insulin-resistant diabetes mellitus with a 5-year history of progressive stiffness and painful spasms of the right leg, exaggerated by sudden auditory and tactile stimuli or by emotional stress. There were no signs of truncal rigidity or exaggerated lumbar lordosis. Anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies were positive in her serum. She improved substantially with clonazepam 4 mg/day. She presented with electrophysiological findings not previously reported in stiff leg syndrome, which may suggest increased inhibition in the uninvolved upper extremities.

Invasions can impact on parasite communities through both the introduction of exotic parasite species and effects of invading hosts on native parasite dynamics. However, our understanding of the factors that influence the invasive process and medi...
