There is a variety of rare movement disorders associated with peripheral trauma and other forms of peripheral injury. For most of these disorders, there is ongoing controversy about whether the movement disorder originates in the peripheral nervous system or whether peripheral injury is the trigger for a centrally generated disorder. In some cases, the involuntary movements fit easily within traditional movement categories such as dystonia, tremor, and myoclonus. There are other disorders, such as rare isolated dyskinesias, where the movements are not easily categorized and so do not comfortably fit in any of the other hyperkinetic movement categories. Since there are few common principles in these conditions, the chapter discusses them each separately.
