Simplifying Therapy for Stiff-Person SyndromeDiplomat combines clinical expertise with personalized care.
Stiff-person syndrome (SPS) is a rare condition — fewer than one in a million people have it. SPS causes muscle rigidity and prolonged — often severe — muscle spasms. These spasms can be caused by factors in the patient’s environment, such as loud noises, being touched, or emotional distress. Because so many things can trigger SPS attacks, it can be hard for patients to leave home.
SPS affects women about twice as often as men.

What are the symptoms of stiff-person syndrome?
SPS usually causes muscle spasms that last for a long time, as well as muscle rigidity — muscles that are painful because they won’t relax.
The muscle spasms can be very severe. In extreme cases, they can break bones. People who have SPS generally have limited mobility due to these spasms.
How does Diplomat help people with stiff-person syndrome?
There is no cure for SPS, but proper treatment can help control the symptoms, allowing people with SPS to live their daily lives.
SPS affects the nervous system. However, people with SPS often have autoimmune disorders as well — conditions that cause the body’s immune system to target healthy cells. Diplomat Specialty Infusion Group dispenses immune globulin therapies to help patients with these conditions.
