Abstract

• A patient experienced a persistent movement disorder comprising asterixis and head bobbing after metrizamide lumbar myelography. Metabolic and structural etiologic factors were excluded. To our knowledge, persistent asterixis and head bobbing as a complication of metrizamide myelography have not been described.
