Clinical characteristics and the mechanisms of development of tardice dystonia observed in a group of patients undergoing long-term neuroleptic therapy are investigated in this chapter. The extrapyramidal symptoms and cerebrospinal fluid levels of monoamines with protracted administration of neuroleptics are presented here. The authors conducted clinical, physiological, and biochemical studies of schizophrenia patients with tardice dystonia that developed during long-term treatment with neuroleptics. It could be inferred from the results that the functional abnormalities of central nervous system monoamine metabolism induce the symptoms.

Keywords:   tardice dystonia, neuroleptic therapy, monoamine metabolism, extrapyramidal symptoms, neuroleptics, cerebrospinal fluid
