Segawa Syndrome (SS) also known as Dopamine-responsive dystonia (DRD), Segawa’s disease, Segawa’s dystonia and hereditary progressive dystonia with diurnal fluctuation, is a genetic movement disorder which usually manifests itself during early childhood at around ages 5–8 years (variable start age).
Characteristic symptoms are increased muscle tone (dystonia, such as clubfoot) and Parkinsonian features, typically absent in the morning or after rest but worsening during the day and with exertion. Children with SS are often misdiagnosed as having cerebral palsy. The disorder responds well to treatment with levodopa.
KOSA Acupuncture’s understanding and Treatment
Although levodopa can help minimize or eliminate the conditions, usually it is not a permanent cure but just a management.
The consequent problem is that the patient would have to suffer the side effects of levodopa whose side effects can be found at www.drugs.com.
