Dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions. It may involve muscles of the neck, jaw, tongue, or the entire body. Dystonia could be a manifestation of an underlying central nervous system disorder or due to drugs. The list of drugs causing dystonia has been increasing as new drugs are becoming available. There are reported cases of levosulpiride-induced dystonia in adults. We report one such drug which caused dystonia in a pediatric patient due to an irrational drug prescription.
