Movement disorders following stroke is a well known phenomena both during acute stage as well as in later phases. The type of movement depends on the site of involvement, it is however not uncommon to have more than one type of movement disorder following a stroke. We present a patient with combined dystonia and asterixis following a unilateral thalamic infarct, whose dystonia persisted on follow up while the asterixis faded away with time.
