Abstract
La mioclonia poshipoxia cronica o sindrome de Lance Adams es una complicacion rara que se produce en pacientes que sobreviven a la hipoxia o la hipotension prolongada, dias o semanas despues del dano cerebral. Se presento un caso con este sindrome, secundario a shock hipovolemico por embarazo ectopico roto. El electroencefalograma con ausencia de paroxismos apoya el origen subcortical de las mioclonias, con respuesta favorable al alonazepan. Se detallaron estudios de neuroimagen y potenciales evocados auditivos de tallo cerebral The chronic poshipoxia myoclonus or Lance Adams syndrome is a rare complication that occurs in patients who survive prolonged hypoxia or hypotension, days or weeks after the complication. A case with this syndrome, hypovolemic shock secondary to a ruptured ectopic pregnancy is presented. EEG with no paroxysms supports the origin of myoclonus subcortical with favorable response to alonazepan. Neuroimaging and auditory evoked potentials and brainstem studies were detailed
