Abstract

We present the case of a 27-year-old man who developed multiple motor tics following closed head trauma with loss of consciousness. Age of onset, lack of family history of tics, and atypical progression of tic severity and location make it unlikely that the patient had Gilles de la Tourette syndrome. Previous reports of post-traumatic tic syndrome are discussed.
