Abstract

Persistent hiccup rarely occurs during rehabilitation, but its management can prove to be very difficult, particularly in presence of associated dysphagia, requiring longer hospitalization and higher risk of severe clinical complications. We present a case of persistent hiccup after surgical resection of a brainstem arteriovenous malformation successfully treated with gabapentin during rehabilitation.
