Abstract

We describe a case of adult onset simple phonic tic after subcortical stroke involving left caudate nucleus. In the acute phase of stroke the patient presented a mild right clumsiness with complete recovery one week after onset. Within 3 weeks after stroke the patient noticed the gradual onset of involuntary simple phonic tic consisting of an "a" sound which persists. The patient did not present motor tics or the typical Tourette syndrome co-morbidities, such as attention deficit or obsessive-compulsive disorder.
