VASCONCELOS, Marcio Gadelha et al. Intermediary form of Foix-Chavany-Marie / Worster-Drought syndromes associated to involuntary movements: neuropsychological and phonoaudiological features. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 2006, vol.64, n.2a, pp.322-325. ISSN 0004-282X.

The Foix-Chavany-Marie syndrome (FCMS) is characterized by apraxia of speech associated to bilateral central facio-linguo-velo-pharyngeal paralysis, with automatic-voluntary dissociation. In Worster-Drought Syndrome (WDS), dysarthria is remarkable. We report an 18-year-old female, with clinical and radiological findings of intermediary form of FCMS/WDS, and showing involuntary movements, an unusual fact.

Keywords : Foix-Chavany-Marie syndrome; Worster-Drought syndrome; involuntary movements.
