Abstract

We report a patient with Lubag (X-linked dystonia-parkinsonism) who presented with severe respiratory stridor from adductor laryngeal breathing dystonia. Emergency tracheostomy was necessary, and subsequent laryngeal injection with botulinum toxin led to worsening aspiration. Botulinum toxin injection for severe lingual dystonia was successful.
