Dyskinesia is a movement disorder which consists of effects including diminished voluntary movements[1] and the presence of involuntary movements, similar to tics or chorea. Dyskinesia is a symptom of several medical disorders and is distinguished by the underlying cause.

Acute

Chronic/tardive

  • Dyskinesia observed in a patient with Parkinson's disease (PD) is labeled as Levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID), and is more commonly a jerky, dance-like movement of the arms and/or head, which usually presents after several years of treatment with L-DOPA (Levodopa).

Non-motor

Two other types, primary ciliary dyskinesia, and biliary dyskinesia, are caused by specific kinds of ineffective movement of the body, and are not movement disorders.
