Abstract

Stiff‐person syndrome (SPS) is an uncommon yet under‐diagnosed, neuromuscular disorder characterised by progressive muscle rigidity with superimposed painful muscle spasms triggered by tactile, auditory or emotional stimulation. We describe the world's first case report of typical SPS in a patient with previously excised thymoma and treated non‐Hodgkin lymphoma. This is of relevance because of the increasingly elucidated autoimmune aetiology of SPS.
