A form of dystonia, a disorder defined by the presence of sustained involuntary muscle contraction, often leading to abnormal postures.

Dystonia begins focally in the lower limbs, resulting in gait difficulties, with later progression to other body regions, including the upper limbs, neck, and orofacial region.
