Abstract

Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation (NBIA) is a rare type of neuroaxonal dystrophy that can be familial or sporadic, characterized by progressive extrapyramidal degeneration. We report a case of 23 year old male who presented with cervical dystonia, dysarthria and MRI brain suggestive of characteristic "eye-of-the-tiger" appearance in the globus pallidus.
