A ten year old boy developed features of Tourette syndrome while taking haloperidol for behaviour problems. A record of his tics was kept and followed during his admission in hospital. His symptoms worsened as haloperidol was decreased and improved as the haloperidol was increased. The literature regarding tardive Tourette syndrome is reviewed and potential implications of the case are discussed.
