Movement disorders associated with neuroleptics : the Curaçao extrapyramidal syndromes study

By P.N. van Harten

Abstract

This thesis concerns extrapyramidal syndromes (EPS) and is divided into three parts because each part has its own study design. The focus of part 1 is on the epidemiology of the EPS tardive dyskinesia, tardive dystonia, parkinsonism, and akathisia. Part 2 focuses on tardive dystonia. It starts with a review of this syndrome and then reports the results of a clinical trial with clozapine. Part 3 opens with a review of acute dystonia and then the results are given of a prospective study that investigated whether the use of cocaine is a risk factor for neuroleptic induced acute dystonia
