Re: Tardive Dyskinesia-like Syndrome Due to Drugs that do not Block Dopamine Receptors: Rare or Non-existent: Literature Review

Walker, Ruth H.

This is a letter responding a literature review about tardive dyskinesia-like syndromes due to drugs that do not block dopamine receptors. The author mentions that forms of dystonia like cranial segmental dystonia, blepharospasm, and other facial
dystonias are probably underrecognized and underdiagnosed and that it is likely that people who are affected by "spontaneous dyskinesia" already have one of these dystonias.
