Paroxysmal dyskinesias are a relatively rare subset of hyperkinetic movement disorders that are defined by their episodic nature. They may be categorized into paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia, paroxysmal nonkinesigenic dyskinesia, and paroxysmal exertion-induced dyskinesia. Paroxysmal dyskinesias may be sporadic, genetic, or caused by metabolic or structural etiologies. Another common cause of paroxysmal dyskinesias is psychogenic movement disorders.

Headache & Pain
SUNCT/SUNA are relatively rare but are very severe forms of primary headache syndromes belonging to the family of trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias. SUNCT is comprised of brief attacks of moderate-to-severe pain lasting 5 to 240 seconds, with associated autonomic disturbances of conjunctival injection, lacrimation, rhinorrhea or nasal congestion, ptosis, or eyelid edema. In SUNCT there must be both conjunctival injection and lacrimation present; in SUNA autonomic symptoms may include either conjunctival injection, lacrimation, or neither, but not both.

Autoreactive antibodies against central or peripheral nervous system antigens may be useful for the diagnosis of several neurologic diseases. In paraneoplastic neurologic disorders, their detection can also help identify an associated cancer at a stage before it is clinically overt, potentially leading to early successful therapy. The sensitivity and specificity and the reliability of the commercially used techniques is important to evaluate in order to avoid useless tests.
