Lance Adams syndrome is the term used to describe late post-hypoxic myoclonus. Here we describe a patient who developed action and intention myoclonus after 7 days of attempted partial hanging. The similarity of Lance Adams syndrome, which is a treatable condition to a cerebellar syndrome, and the diagnostic difficulties have been highlighted.
