Idiopathic Torsion Dystonia (Oppenheim’s Dystonia)
8.2 years (6-9 years)
Normal development, walk normally
Symptoms start in legs in early onset and in arms and cranial structures in later onset
Becomes generalized within one year of onset
Intact mental function & no psychiatric illness
Positive Family History suggesting autosomal dominant inheritance
Course is progressive in early stages followed by Spontaneous stabilization
AD with reduced penetrance
DYT1 gene is responsible for early-onset idiopathic torsion dystonia in Ashkenazi Jewish families, and in one large non-Jewish family
Gene is mapped to chromosome 9q32-34
Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) deletion
Alteration of norepinephrine concentration in several areas of the brainstem
