The aim of this case report is to draw attention to the frequent occurrence of metoclopramide-induced movement disorders. We report a case of an acute dystonic reaction to metoclopramide in a patient treated for hepatitis A. Metoclopramide can cause severe adverse events, such as an acute dystonic reaction, and should be used with caution in patients with infectious diseases.
