Abstract

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) has been reported to be beneficial in various movement disorders, especially tardive dystonic reactions. In this article, we report an interesting case of drug-induced blepharospasm with ocular dystonia which improved with ECT. To our knowledge, a case of ocular dystonia improving with ECT has not been previously reported in the literature.
