Did you mean: Dystonia, focal dystonia, becomes segmental or generalized, Myopathy

  • Writer's Cramp

    Writer's cramp is frequently associated with hand tremor and with other focal dystonias.[] This case broadens the spectrum of fluctuating dopa-sensitive progressive childhood dystonias and provides evidence for writer's cramp being a form of focal dystonia.[] Writer's cramp is a task-specific focal dystonia of the hand.[]

  • Meige Syndrome

    Meige syndrome is a type of focal dystonia characterized by blepharospasm and oromandibular dystonia.[] […] syndrome is an adult-onset dystonic movement disorder that predominantly involves facial muscles, while some patients with this syndrome develop spasmodic dysphonia and dystonia[] Meige's Syndrome (also known as Cranial Dystonia or Oral Facial Dystonia) and is actually a combination of two forms of dystonia – Eye Dystonia (Blepharospasm) and Mouth,[]

  • Spasmodic Torticollis

    In this chapter we have described the use of integrated EMG feedback for the treatment of focal dystonia or spasmodic torticollis.[] In a third of the cases, there is a progression to segmental dystonia.[] Spasmodic torticollis is one focal dystonia which responds poorly to both medication and surgery.[]

  • Adult-Onset Cervical Dystonia Type DYT23

    Related phenotypes are torticollis and cerebellar atrophy Disease Ontology : 12 A focal dystonia characterized by autosomal dominant inheritance of adult-onset cervical dystonia[] COL6A1 Bethlem myopathy COL6A2 Bethlem myopathy type 1 COL6A3 Bethlem myopathy type 2 COL12A1 Borjeson-Forssman-Lehmann syndrome PHF6 Brody myopathy ATP2A1 Brunner syndrome[] However other focal dystonias may not respond and may even be made worse by this treatment.[]

  • Primary Torsion Dystonia

    With a stronger family history, a significantly lower AaO was seen in all focal dystonias.[] Primary torsion dystonia (PTD) is a genetically heterogeneous, isolated form of dystonia.[] Adult-onset acid maltase deficiency is an inherited lysosomal skeletal-muscle disease characterized by progressive myopathy and respiratory failure, for which there is no[]

  • McLeod Neuroacanthocytosis Syndrome

    In collaboration with the Parkinson's disease and stroke teams we offer a Botulinum toxin consultation for the treatment of patients with focal dystonia and spasticity.[] Dystonia of the tongue can lead to swallowing difficulties. Seizures occur in approximately half of all people with McLeod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome.[] McLeod myopathy revisited – more neurogenic and less benign.[]

  • Occupational Cramps

    These results provide objective evidence of a physiological basis for the action or task-specific focal dystonias such as writer's cramp.[] […] and concentration of ionized calcium can disturb neuromuscular transmission and produce cramps Idiopathic cramps Contractures (occurring in conditions such as metabolic myopathies[] We retrospectively reviewed 65 patients given a diagnosis of focal dystonias of the upper extremity and describe painless manual incoordination syndromes, insidious in onset[]

  • Oppenheim Disease

    In most instances, DYT1 symptoms often start with a focal dystonia as talipes equinovarus of one leg in early childhood, typically around 6 years of age.[] The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation, the Dystonia Coalition and the European Dystonia Federation (now called Dystonia Europe) provided the seeding sponsorships for a[] […] and Turner), nemaline myopathy, and central core disease.[]
