    Multiple Sclerosis Presenting with Facial Twitching (Myokymia and Hemifacial Spasms).
    Case Rep Neurol Med 2017 17;2017:7180560. Epub 2017 Sep 17.
    Department of Emergency Medicine, Rowan University SOM, Stratford, NJ, USA.
    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. The etiology is insufficiently understood. Autoimmune, genetic, viral, and environmental factors have been hypothesized. Read More

    Topiramate-Induced Persistent Eyelid Myokymia.
    Case Rep Psychiatry 2016 17;2016:7901085. Epub 2016 May 17.
    Department of Psychiatry, Shafa Hospital, Guilan University of Medical Sciences, Rasht 4165863795, Iran.
    Background. Topiramate (TPM) is a psychotropic drug, which is used mainly as an antiepileptic drug and now over the years is used for a wider range of indications, including migraine prophylaxis and binge eating disorders. Although ocular side effects of Topiramate have been frequently reported, neuroophthalmologic manifestations such as myokymia are rarely reported. Read More

    Eyelid myokymia in patients with migraine taking topiramate.
    Acta Neurol Scand 2015 Aug 31;132(2):143-6. Epub 2015 Mar 31.
    Department of Neurology, Hospital General Universitario Virgen De La Salud, Elda, Spain.
    Objective: Although ocular side effects of topiramate are common, neuroophthalmologic manifestations such as blepharospasm, myokymia and oculogyric crisis are scarcely reported.

    Methods: We present a serie of 8 patients with migraine who developed eyelid myokymia after treatment with topiramate. We reviewed all patients with migraine treated with topiramate attending the headache outpatient clinic of our hospital from January 2008 to December 2012. Read More

    Eyelid myokymia: not always benign.
    Orbit 2011 Dec 29;30(6):289-90. Epub 2011 Sep 29.
    Division of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Weill Cornell Department of Ophthalmology, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, New York, USA.
    A 33-year-old otherwise healthy male presented with a week-long history of isolated right lower eyelid myokymia. Two weeks later, the patient's myokymia had progressed to include twitching of the right brow and right upper lip. Imaging revealed multiple demyelinating lesions consistent with multiple sclerosis.

    Chronic myokymia limited to the eyelid is a benign condition.
    J Neuroophthalmol 2004 Dec;24(4):290-2
    Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center (RB), Bronx, New York 10467, USA.
    Background: Eyelid myokymia, unlike myokymia of the other facial muscles, is assumed to be a benign, self-limited disorder. However, no systematic follow-up study has been performed on patients with chronic, isolated eyelid myokymia to verify its benign nature.

    Methods: Retrospective single-institution chart review of 15 patients examined between 1983 and 2002 with a diagnosis of isolated eyelid myokymia who have had at least 12 months of follow-up. Read More

    Disorders of facial motor function.
    Curr Opin Ophthalmol 1996 Dec;7(6):48-52
    Neurology Unit, Hôtel-Dieu de Montréal Hospital, Québec, Canada.
    This review deals with a variety of disorders of facial movement. Recent publications on blepharospasm, facial spasm, facial myokymia, apraxia of lid opening and facial paralysis are referenced and discussed. In blepharospasm, carefully performed electromyographic studies reveal a variety of abnormal patterns of contraction of the oribicularis oculi and the levator palpebrae muscles confirming the clinical impression that blepharospasm is not a homogeneous disease.

    A clinical and pathologic study of a large Japanese family with Machado-Joseph disease tightly linked to the DNA markers on chromosome 14q.
    Neurology 1994 Jul;44(7):1302-8
    Department of Neurology, Jichi Medical School, Tochigi, Japan.
    The gene locus for Machado-Joseph disease (MJD) has been mapped to chromosome 14q by linkage analysis, mainly using a single large Japanese family. We studied the clinical and neuropathologic findings of this family with MJD, comparing them with those of spinocerebellar ataxia 1 (SCA1) and spinocerebellar ataxia 2 (SCA2) families. The pedigree included 30 affected persons in 125 members of five generations. Read More

    Electrophysiologic investigation of benign eyelid twitching.
    Electromyogr Clin Neurophysiol 1991 Sep;31(6):377-81
    Department of Neurology, New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, NY.
    A 48 year old woman presented with a 5 year history of intermittent right eyelid twitching. Electromyography of the right lower eyelid revealed myokymic discharges. Blink reflex study revealed a contralateral R1 on stimulating the left, but not the right, supra-orbital nerve. Read More
