Gold therapy is responsible for many neurological complications. We report a case presenting with the clinical and electrophysiological characteristics of neuromyotonia, polyradiculoneuritis and Morvan's fibrillary chorea. The various neurological complications of gold therapy and the possible relationships between these different syndromes are discussed.
