Movement disorders, other than tremor, are uncommon during the course and initial presentation in multiple sclerosis. Among the rare movement disorders, paroxysmal dyskinesias are one of the most frequently reported. Paroxysmal dyskinesias are a group of rare movement disorders characterized by recurrent episodes of dystonia, chorea, athetosis, ballism, or a combination of these abnormal movement disorders, with normal neurologic examination between the episodes. Here we report on a patient who presented paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia as the first and only clinical manifestation of multiple sclerosis that resolved completely with low doses of carbamazepine.
