Abstract

This review explores the history and use of the terms essential myoclonus and myoclonic dystonia. In addition, the review proposes that hereditary essential myoclonus and dominantly inherited myoclonic dystonia, with lightning jerks and dramatic response to alcohol, are the same disease, although proof of this hypothesis must come from ongoing genetic studies.
