Camptocormia is a well-known feature in cases of Parkinson disease (PD), and is usually unresponsive to dopaminergic therapy. A 62-year old man with a long history of PD and severe progressive camptocormia underwent bilateral pallidal stimulation. During the next 6 months a sustained improvement in trunk flexion was observed. After 14 months of follow up, the patient's trunk flexion is almost normal.
