PPR and myoclonic jerks induced by IPS in a photosensitive woman

IPS-induced generalized photoparoxysmal responses associated with myoclonic jerks. Note the varying strength and localization of the myoclonic jerks. Some of them are inconspicuous, causing minor eyelid movement or localized hand jerks whereas others are violent jerks of the upper extremities. (Used with permission from: Panayiotopoulos CP.
