Locked‐in syndrome with recovery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report three patients who recovered from “locked‐in” syndrome of presumed vascular origin. One patient narrated her experience of the “locked‐in” phase and its termination. Another demonstrated palatal myoclonus and mirror movements upon recovery. These patients deserve considerate handling and vigorous medical support.
