Abnormal involuntary movements are major features of a large group of neurologic disorders, some of which are neurodegenerative and pose a significant diagnostic and treatment challenge to treating physicians. This article presents a concise review of clinical features, pathogenesis, epidemiology, and management of seven of the most common movement disorders encountered in a primary care clinic routinely. The disorders discussed are Parkinson disease, essential tremor, restless legs syndrome, Huntington disease, drug-induced movement disorder, Wilson disease, and Tourette syndrome.
