Abstract

The stiff person syndrome (SPS) is a rare disorder characterized by muscular rigidity and stiffness. We describe an SPS patient presenting with longstanding fatigue and electrophysiological evidence of presynaptic neuromuscular transmission defect, who responded to administration of pyridostigmine. In contrast, no electrophysiolgical evidence of neuromuscular transmission defect was demonstrated in 2 other SPS patients without fatigue symptoms. Our findings suggest that glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) antibodies may play a role in presynaptic neuromuscular transmission defect of SPS patients with fatigue.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 08 January 2017.
All research outputs
#7,692,297
of 8,869,816 outputs
Outputs from BMC Neurology
#1,174
of 1,280 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#246,890
of 300,864 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Neurology
#26
of 31 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,869,816 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,280 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.4. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 300,864 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 31 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
