Dystonia is a movement disorder caused by involuntary, sustained muscle contractions, frequently resulting in twitching and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. Dopa- responsive dystonia (DRD) is characterized by early childhood onset, marked diurnal fluctuation of symptoms and dramatic response to levodopa. The aim of this report is to present the two cases of DRD misdiagnosed respectively as cerebral palsy and hereditary spastic paraplegia. Proper understanding of this disease entity and its treatment options are necessary for comprehensive rehabilitative management of DRD. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2010; 34: 583-586)
Key Words: Dopa-responsive dystonia, Diurnal variation, Levodopa
