We report a case of cervical dystonia occurring in a 33-year-old without personal history of movement disorder but with family history of essential tremor, primigravid, primiparous woman at 1 weeks' amenorrhea, resolved completely after delivery in the course of 3 months. Dystonia never recurred in the following 5 years. Several neurological disorders are known to occur or worsen during pregnancy. As far as we know, this is the second reported case of dystonia occurring during pregnancy, thus confirming that dystonia gravidarum represents a new entity and should be considered in women of reproductive age affected by dystonia, especially when presenting with rapid-onset cervical dystonia.
