BACKGROUND Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation type 1 (NBIA1), previously called Hallervorden-Spatz disease, is a rare neurodegenerative condition with abnormal brain iron accumulation. There have been some reports of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in the treatment of NBIA1. However, the target was usually the globus pallidus internus or thalamus. OBJECTIVES/METHODS We present a case of NBIA1 in a 16-year-old male who was treated with bilateral subthalamic nucleus (STN)-DBS and… CONTINUE READING
