A pediatric patient with diagnosis of Parry-Romberg syndrome, or progressive hemifacial atrophy, presented with new-onset unilateral alien hand syndrome, which was attributed to focal progressive atrophy and gliosis in the contralateral thalamus observed on serial neuroimaging. This case illustrates not only the clinical-radiographic correlation between alien hand syndrome and contralateral thalamic lesion, but also involvement of deep gray structure in Parry-Romberg syndrome causing a rare movement disorder.
