  • Although no curative treatment for dystonia is available, treatment of the underlying disorder may help reverse symptoms in patients with secondary forms of dystonia (eg, from Wilson disease or DRD).[misc.medscape.com]
  • Together with the loss of S-CRMs, other valuable materials, such as gold or copper, are lost within those output fractions as well, due to limited liberation and separation techniques in mechanical treatment.[encore.seals.ac.za]

  • For both symptomatic and non-symptomatic gene mutation carriers, knowledge about the genetic status may have implications for the prognosis and therapeutic management decisions and with respect to family planning.[neupsykey.com]
  • It can be proposed at the initial phase of the disease to limit the functional consequences and to improve the prognosis for functional recovery.[misc.medscape.com]
  • The prognosis is usually poor 2,16. Tremor and Dystonia Dystonia may erroneously be interpreted as tremor. Dystonic tremor is frequently misdiagnosed as essential tremor or Parkinson disease.[docplayer.net]


  • ETIOLOGY The etiology of primary dystonia is assumed to be a complex combination of intrinsic metabolic properties, environmental and genetic factors 27,28.[docplayer.net]
  • These historical reports usually attributed the etiology of the motor abnormalities to overuse.[wikivisually.com]
  • Secondary dystonia includes a heterogenous group of etiologies including inherited (with and without brain degeneration) and acquired neurologic disorders.[misc.medscape.com]
  • The two main axes of classication currently considered most relevant are clinical and etiological [4].[docslide.net]
