Abstract

Topiramate is a broad-spectrum anticonvulsant that is now widely used for adult and pediatric epilepsy. In a singular case, topiramate was recently reported to benefit vascular hemichorea-hemiballismus. The authors describe three cases of hemichorea-hemiballismus, one of vascular etiology and two of metabolic etiology, effectively treated with topiramate.
