Baclofen is known to cause neurotoxicity in patients with renal dysfunction. Here Authors reported a case of rapidly developed Myoclonus after few doses of Baclofen. These symptoms were abated after stopping Baclofen. Authors concluded that, in patients who developed sudden onset Myoclonus, drug history should be reviewed in detail, and Baclofen toxicity {especially in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD)} should be kept in mind along with drugs which are known to cause the Myoclonus.
