Tardive dystonia is a class of “tardive” movement disorder caused by antipsychotics and is specified by reflex muscle contraction, which may be tonic, spasmodic, patterned, or repetitive. This neurological disorder most commonly occurs as the repercussion of long-term or high-dose use of antipsychotic drugs. Tardive dyskinesia uncommonly inculpates the muscles of eye closure. Blepharospasm is a kind of focal tardive dystonia distinguished by persistent intermittent or persistent closure of the eyelids. Blepharospasm is an uncommon, persistently disabling medical condition rendering patient functionally blind and occupationally handicapped .We hereby tend to report a case of trifluoperazine induced tardive blepharospasm.
