The case study is aimed at providing a more thorough analysis of a case of lateral medullary syn-drome presented only with persistent hiccup after eating lunch the study hopes to generate an interest for further studies into the topic and focuses on abnormal unusual presentations of lateral medullary syndrome. Ethical committee has approved this case after taking consent from the patient and explaining to him the importance of the case in clinical practice.
