Mirror movements are involuntary movements which imitate the movement of the opposite limbs. They can be physiological or pathological and accompany inherent defects, neurological as well as psychiatric diseases. We discuss a case of a man with intracerebral haemorrhage of the right cerebral hemisphere which was the result of craniocerebral trauma. After craniocerebral trauma the patient started to present involuntary movements such as mirror movements of the limbs, mainly upper limbs. The patient undertook rehabilitation which was to minimise motor deficit and involuntary movements. After the treatment the neurological state of the patient improved.
