Pediatric Movement Disorders Series: KMT2B-dystonia

Registration closed


Pediatric movement disorders are a constantly changing field of pediatric neurology that requires us to stay current. Many of the children affected by movement disorders suffer from a rare disease, which causes them to receive a late diagnosis due to the unawareness of these disorders.

KMT2B-related dystonia (DYT-KMT2B) is a complex movement disorder of childhood onset characterized by a progressive disease course that typically progresses from lower-limb focal dystonia to generalized dystonia with prominent cervical, cranial, and laryngeal involvement. Commonly reported are intellectual disability, eye movement abnormalities, and psychiatric comorbidities. There have been reports of milder and atypical manifestations.
