Movement disorders are a rare recognized complication of stroke. Different types of hyperkinetic and hypokinetic movement disorders have been reported and can be seen after ischemic and haemorrhagic strokes. Failure to address these involuntary movements poses a challenge for post-stroke intensive multidisciplinary rehabilitation. We describe a patient presenting with multifocal myoclonus after an Anterior Cerebral Artery (ACA) territory infarct whose symptoms were brought under control with clonazepam. Additionally, we discussed on our experience and the challenges faced in the diagnostic process, management, and rehabilitation of this patient.
