The objective was to report a case of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) with comorbid somatic symptoms that was complicated by movement disorders. A literature search on related issues was done online with Google Scholar, followed by a chronological report of the index case. This case presents a 52-year-old man who presented with intrusive, disturbing, and unreasonable thoughts at the mid adolescent time. Following these were complaints of multiple somatic symptoms which the patient labeled with different disease terms. The illness affected his academic, occupational, social, and marital role obligations. And lately, in the illness due to underlying predispositions, developed drug-related movement problems that worsened his state of handicap. This case attempts to point out the importance of early detection and cautious use of medications in patients, who present with OCDs with or without other psychiatric co-morbidities.
