Involuntary movements are unusual during or after acute stroke, and alien hand sign has not been reported after single parietal infarction. We report on a woman who presented with involuntary movements and a sense of alienness of her left upper limb following a right parietal infarction. This combination, that can meet the criteria for the ‘alien hand syndrome’, is rarely seen after acute lesions sparing the corpus callosum and the mesial frontal areas.
