We report the case of a 27-year-old woman who has had mirror movements in both hands since childhood. These synkinetic involuntary movements impair her performance in bimanual activities such as buttoning clothes, tying shoes, and washing dishes. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging disclosed only mild diffuse cortical atrophy. Although congenital mirror movements have been well-documented in the English literature, we herein report the first case of a Chinese patient in Taiwan.
