Intractable hiccups are defined as hiccup persisting for more than 48hours, and these appear in various diseases. A 28-year-old woman admitted due to intractable hiccups without gastroenteral system abnormalities and peripheral nervous systemic involvement. High signal intensity lesion of the medulla oblangata in the tegmental region was detected on T2-weighted MR imaging, which might be a causative etiology. We encountered a rare case developing intractable hic-cups as presenting symptom of 'clinically definte' multiple sclerosis.
