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[] […] syndrome is an adult-onset dystonic movement disorder that predominantly involves facial muscles, while some patients with this syndrome develop spasmodic dysphonia and dystonia[] Segmental craniocervical dystonia is characterized by blephalospasm and oromandibular dystonia and is also called Meige syndrome.[]

  • Oromandibular Dystonia

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

  • Drug-induced Dystonia

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

  • X-linked Parkinsonism-Spasticity Syndrome

    Dystonia Focal, multifocal, segmental or generalized dystonia Idiopathic, genetic, and secondary dystonia Craniofacial dystonia (including blepharospasm, jaw dystonia, tongue[] […] 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[] Oromandibular dystonia (OMD) : dystonic contractions of muscle groups of the jaw, tongue, lips, or lower face.[]

  • Parkinson's Disease Type 3

    A common form of segmental dystonia affects the eyelids, jaw, mouth and lower face.[] Some with type 3 disease showed a never-before-reported phenomenon of rapid and repetitive dystonia-like hyperkinetic movement disorder.[] 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[]

  • 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[] Primary torsion dystonia (PTD) is a genetically heterogeneous, isolated form of dystonia.[] 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.[]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    Thus a patient who presents with head tremor most likely has essential tremor, cervical dystonia, or both, rather than PD.[] Stuttering reduction was noted when frequency was changed to 80 Hz, but the previously observed dystonia improvement was lost.[] 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[]

  • Orofacial Dyskinesia

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

  • Blepharospasm

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

  • Torticollis

    The most common locations include the face, jaw, arms and trunk.[] 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.[] 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.[]
