We report the case of Meige's syndrome in a 30-year-old young man with no particular history living and working in a mining environment and whose etiological assessment is unremarkable, which classifies him in the vast majority of idiopathic Meige's syndromes until to the contrary. The interest of this case lies in the need to carry out a thorough investigation of all the toxic substances circulating in this environment where mining activity is intensive and to do this, to upgrade the technical platform by calling on collaborations.
