Deep brain stimulation in a dentatorubral-pallidoluyisian atrophy patient with myoclonic dystonia.

Abstract

We describe a patient with myoclonic dystonia caused by dentatorubral-pallidoluyisian atrophy (DRPLA), which was successfully controlled with bilateral deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the globus pallidus internus (GPi).
