  • Hypermetabolism

    The disease progressed with frequent seizures, myoclonus, and a startle reaction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Focal hypermetabolism corresponding with epileptic foci is a common finding in ictal epilepsy patients, and hypometabolism is common in patients with myoclonus or the startle[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Niacin

    During the hospital stay myoclonus was noticed in the patient, which was startle in nature. He did not have dermatitis, ascites or any stigmata of liver failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His clinical condition improved drastically over next 1 week and startle myoclonus disappeared, favouring the diagnosis of APE though multiple confounding factors were present[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
