Movement disorders associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) are uncommon, except for tremor. We report two patients with relapsing-remitting MS, who developed either dystonia or chorea during clinical exacerbation of their MS. The movement disorders resolved during treatment with adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH). Acute exacerbations of MS may be associated with transient movement disorders, which are responsive to ACTH.
