Abstract:

Clinicians use many terms including undulating myokymia, neuromyotonia, Isaacs' syndrome and Cramp-Fasciculation Syndrome to describe the motor manifestations of generalized peripheral nerve hyperexcitability (PNH). Our previous findings in a selected group of patients with undulating myokymia or neuromyotonia, and EMG doublet or multiplet ('myokymic') motor unit discharges, indicated that an autoantibody-mediated potassium channelopathy was likely to be the cause of their disorder.
