Secondary cervical dystonia caused by tuberculous meningitis is extremely rare. Sixteen year-old female and 56 year-old male were admitted with fever, headache and mental change. Several days after admission they presented neck deviation and polygraphic study revealed prolonged muscular contraction of sterocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles without EEG changes. Their MRI revealed bilateral lesions in the basal ganglia. Recognition of dyskinesias associated with meningitis may be helpful in the diagnosis of tuberculous meningitis.
