Introduction: Oromandibular dystonia is an uncontrolled spastic mandibular movement, presenting as a single unique movement or a combination of several movements. Dystonia causes immense psychological distress and interferes with chewing, speech, and other functions. Physicians and clinicians poorly understand oromandibular dystonia leading to several years of mismanagement before arriving at a diagnosis. Also, several patients are misdiagnosed as temporomandibular disorder, bruxism, and sometimes as a psychogenic disorder.

Methodology: The case presented is a 40-year female patient with complaints of temporomandibular joint disorder and bruxism. The patient underwent detailed history taking and clinical examination prior to arriving at the final diagnosis of oromandibular dystonia secondary to parkinsonism disorder.

Conclusion: This case presentation and review will give a brief introduction to dystonia, oromandibular dystonia, and its related movement disorders. Also on why and how a clinician must not miss a life-altering diagnosis.
