This case vignette illustrates dramatic improvement of tardive dyskinesia (TD) in an elderly female with a long history of neuroleptic exposure, following treatment with low-dose risperidone. The TD continued to be in remission at 1-year follow-up. This observation calls for well-designed randomized studies to evaluate the efficacy of risperidone in treating TD.
