abstract

  • Spasmodic dysphonia is a disorder of the central nervous system rather than the larynx, and as in other forms of dystonia, interventions at the end organ have not offered a definitive cure. The pathophysiology underlying dystonia is becoming better understood as a result of discoveries in genetically based forms of the disorder, and this approach is the most promising avenue to a long-term solution.
