Abstract

We report a 37-year-old Japanese woman with hereditary progressive dystonia with marked diurnal fluctuation and dopa-responsive dystonia. She developed dystonia in the lower limbs at the age 11 years, followed by spasmodic torticollis and resting tremor of the feet, which responded remarkably to low doses of levodopa (100 mg/day). Concentrations of biopterin and neopterin in CSF were decreased. Polymerase chain reaction analysis of the guanosine 5'-triphosphate cyclohydrolase I gene revealed a novel mutation.
