    The article presents the case study of a patient with symptoms of dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD) caused by deficiency GTP cyclohydrolase 1. Medical screening of the patient showed brisk deep-tendon teflexes in the legs, which can be mistaken for a positive Babinski sign. Dystonia without...

    Dopamine responsive dystonia (DRD) is an autosomal dominant condition due, most commonly, to mutations within the GTP cyclohydrolase enzyme resulting in deficient dopamine production. Typically, patients present with features of parkinsonism with symptoms worse towards the end of the day...

    Dopa-responsive dystonia is a childhood-onset dystonic disorder, characterized by a dramatic response to low dose of l-Dopa. Dopa-responsive dystonia is mostly caused by autosomal dominant mutations in the GCH1 gene (GTP cyclohydrolase1) and more rarely by autosomal recessive mutations in the TH...

    Guanine triphosphate (GTP)–cyclohydrolase 1 (GCH1)–deficient dopa-responsive dystonia is caused by GCH1 gene mutation. Two children presenting with frequent daily falling are reported with GCH1 gene mutations with persistent response to low-dose levodopa/carbidopa. Typical and...

    Mutations in the gene encoding the dopamine-synthetic enzyme GTP cyclohydrolase-1 (GCH1) cause DOPA-responsive dystonia (DRD). Mencacci et al. demonstrate that GCH1 variants are associated with an increased risk of Parkinson's disease in both DRD pedigrees and in patients with Parkinson's...

    Dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD) is a rare inherited dystonia that responds very well to levodopa treatment. Genetic mutations of GTP cyclohydrolase I (GCH1) or tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) are disease-causing mutations in DRD. To evaluate the genotype-phenotype correlations and diagnostic values of...

    Dopa responsive dystonia results from abnormalities in the dopamine synthesis pathway which produces an array of phenotypic presentations with equally numerous genotypes. First documented in children in 1971, the 'classic' phenotype is childhood onset, predominantly lower limb dystonia which...

    Background: Segawa syndrome due to GIP cyclohydrolase deficiency is an autosomal dominant disorder with variable expression, that is clinically characterised by L-dopa responsive, diurnally fluctuating dystonia and parkinsonian symptoms.

    The clinical diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease (PD) is not supported by Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) using dopamine transporter radioligand in 4-15 % of patients. It has been hypothesized that this phenomenon, named 'Scans Without Evidence of Dopaminergic Deficiency'...
