Abstract

We report on a patient who presented a transient eyelid motor disorder characterized by bilateral reflex blepharospasm as the main clinical manifestation of a right-sided striatal infarction. This case emphasizes the role of the nondominant striatum in the pathophysiology of eyelid motor abnormalities. © 2004 Movement Disorder Society
