Tardive dyskinesia is an extrapyramidal syndrome seen in patients who are on long term neuroleptic treatment. A total of 166 outpatients who were on neuroleptic treatment for a minimum period of six months were evaluated for tardive dyskinesia and the risk factors were analysed. The prevalence of tardive dyskinesia was 11.6% and in none of the cases was it found to be severely disabling. The study identified high neuroleptic dose and use of depot preparation as risk factors in tardive dyskinesia.
