Giorelli, Maurizio; Zimatore, Giovanni Bosco

Adult-onset focal dystonias (AOFDs) are non-task-specific or task-specific and may spread to other body segments of affected patients. Case report We report the case of a barber with non-task-specific craniocervical dystonia and a new occupational focal hand dystonia (while using scissors). Discussion Different AOFDs may develop and coexist in the same "vulnerable" patient. Hairdresser’s dystonia is a rare task-specific dystonia.
