Abstract

The author presents new opinions on the etiopathogenesis, diagnostics and methods of treatment of dystonias. Effectiveness of the hitherto used pharmacological and surgical treatment methods was limited. This group of diseases, so far rather scantily presented in the Polish language literature, requires a modern approach, since a highly effective treatment has been recently developed in the form of locally injected botulinum toxin.
