Abstrakt

Paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity is defined by dystonia (paroxystic increase in muscle tone) and at least one of the following symptoms: hyperthermia, arterial hypertension, tachypnoea, tachycardia, sweating and hypersalivation/increase in bronchial secretion. Paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity can cause systemic disorders, contractures (joints) and excessive weight loss because of a massive loss of muscle protein. If there are clinical signs of paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity and other explanations for the symptoms are ruled out, it is recommended to try treatment with intrathecal baclofen.
