The stiff-man syndrome is a rare neurological disorder characterized by progressive stiffness of the axial muscles and co-contraction of agonist and antagonist muscles sometimes accompanied by involuntary sudden muscle spasms. The disease is thought to be caused by immunological changes leading to a GABA transmission disturbance, but the precise pathogenesis is not clear. Two Hungarian cases are presented in this article accompanied by a review of the literature. The aim of the paper is to call the attention on this presumably underdiagnosed disease. The diagnostic laboratory tests of the disease are available in Hungary.
