Catatonic schizophrenia (1)

This patient, currently being treated with mesoridazine, valproic acid, and benztropine, displays shoulder adduction and elbow flexion with his hands placed in front of his face, tremor-like movements of the hands, dystonic-like grimacing of the face with teeth exposure, and vocalization. He exhibits verbigeration and bizarre vocal outbursts, as well as a mild action and postural tremor during less agitated moments. (Contributed by Dr. Mark Stacy.)
