Topic: Neuromodulation in Dystonia

Description: n this case discussion we will present two cases with KMT2B dystonia with varying severity. We will discuss and learn about diagnostic clues, treatment modalities, outcome measures, and selection of patients for neuromodulation.
Dystonia is characterized by sustained or intermittent muscle contractions that cause abnormal movements or postures. Several genes have been linked to different forms of dystonia. Mutations in lysine-specific histone methyltransferase 2B gene, KMT2B, has been identified in patients with early onset generalized dystonia. Most patients with KMT2B dystonia present with progressive lower extremity dystonia with subsequent rapid generalization (caudocranial) and very frequent bulbar involvement. Oromandibular and laryngeal dystonia are typical. Deep brain stimulation is a promising treatment option for KMT2B dystonia with evident clinical and functional improvement.
