Complex approach to the therapy of rare forms of dystonia

Cover Page

Abstract

Neurological manifestations of the disease in patients with rare forms of dystonia residing in Belarus are analyzed. Clinical variants of these dystonias and possible methods of their complex treatment are discussed. According to extensive long-term experience of the authors, optimal treatment of writer’s cramp, oromandibular dystonia, camptocormia, and segmentary and multifocal forms of dystonia should include different medications, injections of botulotoxin and physiotherapy.
