This chapter deals with a number of conditions that do not fit easily into the major categories of movement disorders. Some, such as stereotypies, can be seen in a variety of the diseases that have been covered in the preceding chapters, while others are again mentioned to put them into a broader context. Thus, neuroleptic malignant syndrome can be considered as a drug-induced akinetic–rigid syndrome, and hence has been covered in Chapter 13, but also has features of catatonia, and is thus also briefly mentioned here. By its very nature, this chapter deals with a number of unrelated disorders. Some are very important because of their frequency, e.g. drop attacks and hemifacial spasm.
