Abstract

The case of an 11-year-old female with the clinical findings of Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome, including progressive dystonia, dysarthria, disturbances of gait, and retinal pigmentary degeneration, is presented. The differential diagnosis of childhood dystonia and retinal pigmentary degeneration associated with neurological conditions is discussed. The presence of basal ganglia densities on computed tomography scanning in this patient may aid in future premortem diagnosis of this rare disease.
