Extrapontine myelinolysis (EPM) is a rare cause of parkinsonism. In this case report, we describe a 63-year-old woman with parkinsonism due to EPM after correction of hyponatremia. During a 4-year follow-up, both the clinical features of parkinsonism and the changes on magnetic resonance imaging resolved. Parkinsonism due to EPM should be recognized as it has a good prognosis.
