  • Paroxysmal Kinesigenic Dyskinesia

    Causes In some cases, dystonia occurs due to a known specific cause (acquired dystonia). Other cases are genetic and occur due to specific genetic mutations.[rarediseases.org] Tardive dystonia is generally considered a severe form of tardive dyskinesia characterized by muscle contractions resulting in slower, writhing movements.[rarediseases.org]

  • Writer's Cramp

    For most people no cause is found, although it can be related to repetitive movements performed over many years in some cases.[dystonia.org.au] A genetic cause may be found if the writer’s cramp is part of a more generalised dystonia.[dystonia.org.au] It is generally accepted that writer’s cramp is in part related to a problem with the functioning and connections of various areas of the brain including the basal ganglia[dystonia.org.au]

  • Infantile Hemiplegia

    Mutations in the CACNA1A (19p13), SLC1A3 (5p13) and ATP1A2 (1q21-q23) genes have been identified in some cases but these patients generally presented with alternating hemiplegia[orpha.net] Other neurological manifestations include epilepsy, developmental delay, intellectual deficit, choreoathetosis, dystonia and ataxia.[orpha.net]

  • Movement Disorder

    Tremor In some cases, tremor is not disruptive to day-to-day life and does not require treatment.[childneurologyfoundation.org] The resulting weakness decreases the ability of the muscle to generate a dystonic contraction. There are surgical options for a certain subset of patients with dystonia.[childneurologyfoundation.org]

  • Familial Tremor

    In some cases with patients who already have dystonia, a subsequent tramatic injury or the effects of general anethesia during an unrelated surgery can cause the symptoms[en.wikipedia.org] […] of DYT1 dystonia.[en.wikipedia.org] Some decades later, in 1975, the first international conference on dystonia was held in New York.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Psychogenic Movement Disorders

    Tremor In some cases, tremor is not disruptive to day-to-day life and does not require treatment.[childneurologyfoundation.org] The resulting weakness decreases the ability of the muscle to generate a dystonic contraction. There are surgical options for a certain subset of patients with dystonia.[childneurologyfoundation.org]

  • Adult-Onset Cervical Dystonia Type DYT23

    […] first gene responsible for some cases of generalized torsion dystonia was identified, termed DYT1 [ 14 ].[neupsykey.com] In some cases with patients who already have dystonia, a subsequent tramatic injury or the effects of general anethesia during an unrelated surgery can cause the symptoms[wikivisually.com] Autosomal-Dominant Forms of Primary Dystonia with Known Genetic Defect DYT1 Dystonia (Early-Onset Generalized Dystonia) Associated with TOR1A Gene Mutations In the 1990s the[neupsykey.com]

  • Meige Syndrome

    Its etiology is largely unknown; some cases seem to be induced by administration of drugs.[symptoma.com] Overexcitation of basal ganglia neurons may result in alterations of muscle tone impulse generators and regulators and thus provoke dystonia.[symptoma.com] Contrary to generalized forms of dystonia, neither limbs nor trunk are involved. MS is usually diagnosed in middle-aged persons and more often in females.[symptoma.com]

  • Degenerative Brain Disorder

    In some cases, limb dystonia may be present.[rarediseases.org] Dystonia is a general term for a group of neurological conditions characterized by involuntary muscle contractions that force a certain part(s) of the body into abnormal,[rarediseases.org]
