Musician's Dystonia (MD) represents an intriguing disorder with rich phenomenology and unclear pathophysiology. We observed a MD affecting left upper limb in a professional drummer. DaT-Scan revealed slight reduced uptake in the right putamen; no extrapyramidal or other neurological signs emerged in 2.5 years of follow up. The case offers insight on dopaminergic involvement in MD.

Abstract

Musician's Dystonia (MD) represents an intriguing disorder with rich phenomenology and unclear pathophysiology. We observed a MD affecting left upper limb in a professional drummer. DaT-Scan revealed slight reduced uptake in the right putamen; no extrapyramidal or other neurological signs emerged in 2.5 years of follow up. The case offers insight on dopaminergic involvement in MD.
