Transcranial magnetic stimulation for diplopia in a patient with spinocerebellar ataxia type 6: a case report
A 62-year-old Japanese male with spinocerebellar ataxia type 6(SCA6) was admitted to our hospital for exacerbation of ataxia. We administered single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) over the hand motor area (40 single pulses, about 0.3Hz at 100% of RMT) and over the cerebellum (20 single pulses, about 0.5Hz at 50% of RMT) with a circular coil once a day for one session, and for five sessions a week for 2 weeks (10 sessions). This therapy was performed for 2 courses, separated by a rest period of about 2 weeks (total 20 sessions) to reduce ataxia. ... read more
