A collection of rare, degenerative, neurological disorders which are characterized by epilepsy, cognitive impairment, myoclonus and progressive ataxia is known as Dyssynergia Cerebellaris Myoclonica. The onset of the disorder generally occurs in early adulthood. The tremor may start in one extremity and later spread to involve the whole voluntary muscular system. Usually, arms get more affected that legs. In some cases, the condition also occurs because of mitochondrial abnormalities.
The treatment for Dyssynergia Cerebellaris Myoclonica is symptomatic. Myoclonus and seizures can be treated with drugs like valproate.
The progression for this condition is normally 10 years or even more than that.
