Abstract

We describe two terminally ill cancer patients severely distressed by intractable hiccup. Commonly recommended treatments were ineffective. Intravenous midazolam 5-10 mg rapidly relieved the hiccup. Maintenance treatment comprised midazolam 40-120 mg/24 hr by continuous subcutaneous infusion.
