A case of dancing feet and dancing eye is presented for its peculiar features of ataxia, nystagmoid movements of the eye and asynchronous random jerks of the muscles, extreme irritability but total lack of mental clouding. Most of the laboratory investigations are normal except that the electrophoretic analysis of CSF protein shows a distinct pre­-albumin band and increase in gamma globulin. There is uniformly favourable response to corticosteroids.
