    Unilateral focal neuromyotonia has been rarely reported in fingers or extraocular muscles. We report a case of segmental neuromyotonia in a 20-year-old boy who presented to us with intermittent tightness in right upper limb. Electromyography revealed myokymic and neuromyotonic discharges in...

    Morvan's Syndrome is a combination of neuromyotonia with central and autonomic disturbances. We report a series of nine patients observed since 2003 after hydrocele tapping and local instillation of xylocaine and denatured spirit into scrotal sac to prevent its recurrence. Nine male age ranging...
