Abstract: Since its first description in 1962, palatal myoclonus (PM) has been recognized as a distinct and rare clinical entity characterized by recurrent rhythmic contraction of soft palate, which may be accompanied by contraction of larynx, pharynx, diaphragm or extraocular muscles.1 It usually develops secondary to a residual lesion of CNS, and is consequently termed symptomatic, while patients with no evidence of structural lesion of CNS are labelled as essential myoclonus.2 There are infrequent case reports from India.3 We report a case of palatal myoclonus secondary to post-traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage.
