• The neuroleptic malignant syndrome is an uncommon, severe illness that consists of fever, muscular rigidity, and stupor. Various neuroleptics have been associated with the disease. A detailed neurological, medical, and neuropathological evaluation of this case was performed. Presumably, the syndrome is secondary to biochemical dysfunction of the basal ganglia and possibly of the hypothalmus.
