Chapter 3 Dystonia: Part 1 Paul E. 1 In 1944, Herz outlined the transformation in medical thinking that culminated in the understanding of dystonia as an organic brain symptom. This started with the belief that St. Vitus’s dance, and subsequently many hyperkinetic disorders, were psychiatric in origin. Gradually, throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, chorea was separated out from this mélange of disorders and a variety of causes for chorea were identified. In the late 1800s, it was recognized that writhing movements superimposed on chorea indicated a different set of causes, and the concept of athetosis became established.

13 Primary Dystonia The first challenge in diagnosing primary dystonia is to distinguish the symptom dystonia from the other hyperkinetic symptoms. Even though no other hyperkinetic movements are usually sustained, this can sometimes be difficult. Many people with torticollis (cervical dystonia) and some people with limb dystonia have superimposed tremor. Sometimes, the tremor has a predominant direction: a fast phase in one direction followed by a slow phase in the opposite direction. This distinguishes it from tremor of essential tremor (ET) type.
