Rapid-onset dystonia-parkinsonism (RDP) is a rare condition with autosomal-dominant inheritance causing dystonia and parkinsonism which develop over a short period of time. It results from abnormalities in the Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase pump due to mutations in the ATP1A3 gene. This chapter reviews the clinical features, genetics, and diagnosis of this disorder.
