Description:
We report a 45 year old man with neuroleptic-induced dyskinesia for whom deep brain stimulators (DBS) were implanted in the globus pallidus internus (GPi). We describe a significant improvement in his symptoms. Lastly, we review briefly the success of deep brain stimulation to date, and discuss the clinical implications for individuals who develop movement disorders during neuroleptic use.
