Abstract
Unlike most basal ganglia disorders, which usually progress slowly and relentlessly, a number of movement disorders may develop as acute or subacute conditions. Their occurrence commonly prompts patients to rush into the emergency room. A proper diagnosis is not always straightforward and requires a detailed analysis of the movement disorder phenomenology and a thorough medication screening, as many of these acute situations may be iatrogenic and drug-related. An accurate identification of the problem may enable an effective management and an appropriate therapy. This article is an overview of three distinct movement disorder emergencies, namely acute dystonia, acute chorea, and acute complications that can be observed in Parkinson's disease. Each topic is illustrated with a case report.
