Abstract

A 59-year-old man with a 30-year history of an unusual movement disorder characterised by involuntary axial spasms that occur only in recumbency is described. Clinical and electrophysiological evidence suggest that this disorder is best characterised as a simple tic of unusual form. We have coined the term “recumbent tic” to describe this disorder.
