PMID:  22878989     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
In this rare case, the patient presented with opsoclonus, myoclonus and ataxia. Serological and imaging studies revealed high glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody (GAD-Ab) levels. High-dose corticosteroids were of no benefit and subsequent intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) administration proved resolution of the condition. Levetiracetam proved useful in symptomatically controlling the myoclonus. Follow-up GAD-Ab levels were within normal limits.
