Parkinsonism Relat Disord. 2000 Oct 1;6(4):241-242. doi: 10.1016/s1353-8020(00)00020-1.


The opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome is a pathological condition characterized mainly by involuntary myoclonic movements involving ocular, trunk and limb muscles associated with ataxia and other neurological signs.We describe the case of a 30-year-old woman who developed this syndrome 15days after anti-Rubella vaccination. This case suggests a possible autoimmune post-vaccinic etiopathogenesis of opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome, rarely described in the literature.
