167 Possible Causes for Dystonia, Jaw Dystonia

  • Meige Syndrome

    Clinical Features of Segmental Craniocervical Dystonia: Patients with blepharospasm may also have lower facial dystonia, masticatory (jaw muscles) dystonia, lingual (tongue[blepharospasm.org] […] syndrome is an adult-onset dystonic movement disorder that predominantly involves facial muscles, while some patients with this syndrome develop spasmodic dysphonia and dystonia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Segmental craniocervical dystonia is characterized by blephalospasm and oromandibular dystonia and is also called Meige syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Oromandibular Dystonia

    The jaw opening increased to 50 mm. Coronoidotomy is useful for patients with jaw-closing dystonia in whom other therapies are ineffective.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , oromandibular dystonia and dysphonia.[en.wikipedia.org] Oromandibular dystonia (OMD) is a focal dystonia manifested by involuntary muscle contractions producing repetitive, patterned mouth, jaw, and tongue movements.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Drug-induced Dystonia

    There are many variations of oromandibular dystonia, but one common one is involuntary jaw-opening dystonia.[pocketdentistry.com] Moreover, a serious and debilitating form of the disorder called tardive dystonia may follow. There are no tests tailored to diagnose drug-induced dystonia.[symptoma.com] Cranial dystonia affects the head, face, and neck muscles. Oromandibular dystonia causes spasms of the jaw, lips, and tongue muscles.[webmd.com]

  • X-linked Parkinsonism-Spasticity Syndrome

    Dystonia Focal, multifocal, segmental or generalized dystonia Idiopathic, genetic, and secondary dystonia Craniofacial dystonia (including blepharospasm, jaw dystonia, tongue[movementdisorders.us] […] to alcohol combined with variable degrees of dystonia DYT-12 ATP1A3 19q13 Rapid Onset Dystonia-Parkinsonism Autosomal Dominant Acute or subacute onset of dystonia in combination[cmdg.org] Oromandibular dystonia (OMD) : dystonic contractions of muscle groups of the jaw, tongue, lips, or lower face.[stanfordmedicine25.stanford.edu]

  • Parkinson's Disease Type 3

    A common form of segmental dystonia affects the eyelids, jaw, mouth and lower face.[aans.org] Some with type 3 disease showed a never-before-reported phenomenon of rapid and repetitive dystonia-like hyperkinetic movement disorder.[gaucherdiseasenews.com] Compared to PD, a lower risk of developing falls and freezing of gait but a higher risk of dystonia, motor fluctuations, and levodopa induced dyskinesia (LID) have been reported[orpha.net]

  • Primary Torsion Dystonia

    […] represented in the NINDS Repository Focal dystonia (affecting one area of the body) Craniofacial/oromandibular dystonia (face and/or jaw) Cervical dystonia (neck) Blepharospasm[catalog.coriell.org] Primary torsion dystonia (PTD) is a genetically heterogeneous, isolated form of dystonia.[symptoma.com] Dystonia of the jaw could impair speech. Dystonia throughout the whole body (aka generalized dystonia) impairs the ability of the victim to stand or sit.[krafchick.com]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    Thus a patient who presents with head tremor most likely has essential tremor, cervical dystonia, or both, rather than PD.[web.archive.org] Stuttering reduction was noted when frequency was changed to 80 Hz, but the previously observed dystonia improvement was lost.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The prevalence of GCH1 mutations in probands was different between PD [1.9% (5/268)] and DRD [26.9% (7/26)] (p value KEYWORDS: Dopa-responsive dystonia; Dystonia; GCH1; Genetics[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Orofacial Dyskinesia

    Oromandibular dystonia (OMD) is perhaps the most common of these and includes jaw opening, jaw closing, and jaw deviation dystonia.[link.springer.com] There are many variations of oromandibular dystonia, but one common one is involuntary jaw-opening dystonia.[pocketdentistry.com] Although asterixis, dystonia, and tremor have been described with carbamazepine (Tegretol), there is no report of orofacial dyskinesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Blepharospasm

    As times blepharospasm may occur with dystonia affecting the mouth and jaw, or oromandibular dystonia.[brandywineeye.com] Evidente VG (2002) Zolpidem improves dystonia in "Lubag" or X-linked dystonia-parkinsonism syndrome. Neurology 58:662-663.[web.archive.org] , most patients with blepharospasm also develop contractions of other facial muscles, jaw muscles (oromandibular dystonia), and many also have associated contractions of neck[medlink.com]

  • Torticollis

    The most common locations include the face, jaw, arms and trunk.[mayoclinic.org] Dystonia tends to become more severe during the first months or years after onset, and may spread to other regions, especially the jaw, arm, or leg.[encyclopedia.com] Cervical dystonia, spasmodic torticollis, and wry neck all refer to the same disease. This is when the constant contraction of muscles forces the movement of the neck.[bellaireneurology.com]
