    Abstract

    The intrathecal administration of baclofen by way of an implanted subcutaneous drug delivery system is described in a patient with a severe spastic paraparesis due to multiple sclerosis. Intrathecally-administered baclofen is proposed as another therapeutic dimension and adjunct to physical therapy in the management of patients with severe spasticity that is unresponsive to antispasticity agents administered by mouth.
