Adverse drug reactions deteriorate patient state, delay proper diagnosis and therapy. Drug-induced extrapyramidal syndromes caused by use of receptor D2 antagonists are relatively rare. We present a case of acute dystonia with upper limbs tremors after medication with metoclopramide and neuroleptic drugs in young patient operated on acute aortic dissection. Besides a rare comlication in the shape of right temporo-maxillary joint luxation and somatic symptoms of anxiety reaction occured, what made difficult the proper diagnosis and fast treatment.
