Blepharospasm (BSP) is a sub-phenotype of focal dystonia. A few genetic risk factors are considered to be implicated in the risk of developing BSP. There is recent evidence, based on results from GWAS and meta-analyses, to suggest that arylsulfatase G (ARSG), and more specifically rs11655081, is implicated in focal dystonia. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of rs11655081 ARSG on BSP. A Greek cohort, which consisted of 206 BSP patients and an equal number of healthy… CONTINUE READING
