Movement Disorders 22 (13) : 1969-1971. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1002/mds.21703||Abstract:||Stiff person syndrome (SPS) has been associated with autoimmune diseases, such as Type 1 diabetes mellitus and autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis), among others. The association of SPS with hyperthyroidism is extremely rare. We describe a patient with uncontrolled Graves' disease and undiagnosed SPS, who presented initially with acute ataxia simulating a cerebrovascular accident. Initiation of immunosuppressive therapy dramatically improved the patient's Graves' disease within 2 weeks but the neurological symptoms were not alleviated after a follow-up period of 3 years. 2007 Movement Disorder Society.||Source Title:||Movement Disorders||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/149202||ISSN:||08853185||DOI:||10.1002/mds.21703|
