Although drug-related acute dystonic reaction is one of the known side-effects of haloperidol therapy, the number of cases reported, particularly in children, is quite low. This report discusses a case of a male child developing acute dystonic reaction, and nearly drowning, while swimming in the sea following inappropriate use of haloperidol he was taking for tic disorder. The purpose of this report is to draw attention to acute dystonic reaction that may occur, not only at times when this drug, which enjoys wide pediatric use, is started or the dosage is increased, but also due to misuse by families.
