Introduction: The writer's cramp syndrome is a kind of local dystonia which appears in the hands due to uncontrollable muscular spasms, making a hard and tiring job of writing for patients.

Case Report: The present study investigates a 55 year old married male, a bank officer, who has been suffering from myoclonic epilepsy and compulsion since the age of 17, and a few years later developed the writer's cramp syndrome following a sudden stress. There is no report on the simultaneity of the writer's cramp, myoclonic epilepsy and compulsion.

Conclusion: The patient's myoclonic epilepsy condition has been under control by a daily dosage of 5 mg of diazepam. However, the writer's cramp syndrome and the compulsion have not been under appropriate therapeutic control.
