Özet

In children, similar to adults, the agents that cause movement disorders are most commonly dopaminergic and antidopaminergic drugs. However, it is also known that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which are frequently prescribed in child psychiatry practice, may rarely lead to tremor, akathisia, dystonia, dyskinesia, and parkinsonism. In this study, we report a rare side effect of SSRIs, namely oromandibular dystonia related to sertraline, in a pediatric patient who was diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder.
