Tardive dyskinesia (TD) was first described in 1964, but treatment for this sometimes poorly characterized condition lagged decades as it was labored by medico-legal implications. TD has often been lumped with other medication-induced disorders and incorrectly classified as extrapyramidal symptoms. TD is likely to be under-recognized for many of these reasons. Though diverse in its presentations, TD is distinct in terms of time course, pathophysiology, and phenomenology.
