Abstract

As an important cause of disability in adults, post-stroke spasticity (PSS) is a big challenge for the clinician and the effective management of spasticity should be necessary and essential for patients. We herein present a rare case of hyperpyrexia caused by upper respiratory tract infection which obviously relieved post-stroke spasticity (PPS), inspired by this, hyperthermia might be a new good way to relieve spasticity.

 

Key words: Post-stroke, hyperpyrexia, spasticity.
