Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Botulism is a widespread neuroparalytic disease that may be confused with other neurological disorders. As it is potentially lethal, clinicians are required to be aware of its diagnosis and management. We report a case of botulism complicated by pyramidal signs in a 35-year-old woman. Clinical aspects, differential diagnoses and therapeutic problems are discussed.
