Dystonic camptocormia: clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment results

Cover Page

Abstract

This study was aimed at assessing clinical features of camptocormia as one of the symptoms of dystonia and evaluating the effectiveness of various treatments for this condition. The study involved 39 patients with dystonia and camptocormia symptoms. We analyzed the clinical features of dystonic camptocormia, evaluated the results of pharmacotherapy and botulinum therapy, as well as neuromodulation methods, namely transcranial magnetic stimulation and deep brain stimulation. It was shown that phased and integrated approach is required to manage patients with camptocormia caused by dystonic hyperkinesis. Local injection of botulinum toxin and deep brain stimulation are the most effective treatments. More extensive use of low-frequency transcranial magnetic stimulation may be advisable for everyday practical use in patients with dystonic prosternation.
