Abstract

Dyskinesias are known to occur in many patients with Parkinson's disease treated with dopaminergic drugs but to date, drug-induced dyskinesias have not been observed in humans with no underlying basal ganglia disorder. We describe a patient with psychogenic parkinsonism and intravenous apomorphine abuse leading to subsequent choreatiform dyskinesias. © 2004 Movement Disorder Society
