Meige’s Syndrome is a rare movement disorder of adulthood. Symptoms are generally poorly improvedby drug therapy. It has been suggested that the symptoms are the result of increased cholinergic and dopaminergic activity in the basal ganglia. Michelli et al.’0 suggested that Lisuride could reduce the intensity ofthe abnormal movements, but further investigation of this drug has not been reported for this disorder.The case of a 68 year old lady with Meige’s syndrome is reported whose symptoms improved with Lisuride.It is suggested that serotonin may also play a role in the genesis of the symptoms of this disease.
