Out of 17 schizophrenic and 14 manic patients diagnosed according to ICD-10, 11 and 9 patients respectively developed acute dystonia following a single intravenous injection of 40mg haloperidol. The results are not statistically significant (p>0.05) suggesting that monies and schizophrenics are equally vulnerable to develop neuroleptic - induced acute dystonia.
