Dystonia is the most common delayed movement disorder poststroke with basal ganglia involvement seen in the majority of them. Dystonia usually develops within 1 year of stroke. We report a case of poststroke cervicobrachial segmental dystonia which developed after 9 years of ipsilateral cerebellar stroke. Dystonia can be a sequela of cerebellar stroke, and may occur even after a prolonged latency. This should be considered in a case of segmental dystonia with the past history of cerebellar stroke.
