INTRODUCTION: Camptocormia is defined as an involuntary, marked flexion of the thoracolumbar spine appearing during standing or walking and resolving in the supine position or when leaning against a wall. However, there is no established agreement on the minimum degree of forward flexion needed to diagnose camptocormia. Likewise, the current definition does not categorize camptocormia on the basis of the bending fulcrum. METHODS: We performed a survey among movement disorders experts to identify camptocormia using images of patients with variable degrees and types of forward trunk flexion by fulcrum (upper and lower fulcra)...

Camptocormia, a condition that involves the abnormal flexion of the trunk and results in a forward-bending posture, is relatively common during the course of Parkinson disease (PD). Despite this, there is ongoing controversy concerning its mechanisms and no consensus regarding the underlying etiology. This report demonstrates a case in which a dopaminergic agonist (DA) was implicated in the onset of camptocormia episodes in a non-PD patient who developed camptocormia after the start of DA treatment. Over a course of 8 years, the patient experienced intermittent camptocormia, which resulted in multiple falls...

PURPOSE: Most patients suffering from Parkinson's disease (PD) exhibit alterations in the posture, which can in several cases give rise to spine deformities, both in the sagittal and the coronal plane. In addition, degenerative disorders of the spine frequently associated to PD, such as spinal stenosis and sagittal instability, can further impact the quality of life of the patient. In recent years, spine surgery has been increasingly performed, with mixed results. The aim of this narrative review is to analyze the spinal disorders associated to PD, and the current evidence about their surgical treatment...

A 66-year-old woman with a history of interstitial lung disease presented with a 3-month history of dropped head syndrome (DHS), followed by camptocormia and extremity weakness. A clinical examination revealed Raynaud phenomenon, arthralgia, distal skin sclerosis, and microbleeds in the nailfold capillaries. An anti-Ku antibody test was positive. A muscle biopsy revealed inflammatory myopathy with rimmed vacuoles (RVs). The diagnosis of scleroderma-polymyositis (SSc-PM) overlap syndrome was made. RVs on a muscle biopsy in a patient with inflammatory myositis involving axial muscles may be seen either in inclusion body myositis or SSc-PM overlap syndrome...

Camptocormia is defined as an involuntary flexion of the thoracolumbar spine, without fixed kyphosis, which increases during walking and standing, and abates in the supine position. First described during World War 1 in soldiers suffering from war psychoneuroses, camptocormia has progressively come to refer to any cause of trunk forward-flexed posture during standing and ambulation. It is now admitted that camptocormia should be considered as a syndrome related to many etiologies. In this chapter, we present the historical aspects of the syndrome and its main etiologies...

Upright stance in humans requires an intricate exchange between the neural mechanisms that control balance and those that control posture; however, the distinction between these control systems is hard to discern in healthy subjects. By studying balance and postural control of a participant with camptocormia - an involuntary flexion of the trunk during standing that resolves when supine - a divergence between balance and postural control was revealed. A kinematic and kinetic investigation of standing and walking showed a stereotyped flexion of the upper body by almost 80° over a few minutes, and yet the participant's ability to control center of mass within the base of support and to compensate for external perturbations remained intact...

Statin-induced necrotising autoimmune myopathy (NAM) is a rare but disabling complication of statin therapy. Data regarding treatment and outcomes in these patients is sparse. We retrospectively identified those patients with a diagnosis of statin-induced NAM who were managed in a single-tertiary referral centre from January 2014 to January 2017. Data regarding clinical features, serology, antibody status and functional outcome was collected. We identified 16 patients diagnosed with statin-induced NAM. Truncal weakness was present in 9/16 patients, of which one patient presented with camptocormia...

The therapeutic applications of botulinum toxin (BoNT) have grown manifold since its initial approval in 1989 by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of strabismus, blepharospasm, and other facial spasms. Although it is the most potent biologic toxin known to man, long-term studies have established its safety in the treatment of a variety of neurologic and non-neurologic disorders. This review focuses on some novel and uncommon uses of BoNT in the treatment of movement disorders, such as oromandibular dystonia, including bruxism, anterocollis, camptocormia, tremor, tics, tardive and levodopa-induced dyskinesia, and restless legs syndrome...

INTRODUCTION: Camptocormia is frequently seen in Parkinson's disease (PD) and multiple system atrophy. It is characterized by a pathological forward bending of the trunk during standing, often combined with a lateral trunk deviation. The etiology of camptocormia in PD is still unknown. Muscle MRI studies show abnormalities mainly of the erector spinae confirmed by muscle biopsies. Quantitative electromyographic examination of trunk muscle activity is missing. METHODS: Ventral (rectus and obliquus externus abdominis) and dorsal (iliocostalis lumborum, longissimus, multifidus) trunk muscles and the rectus femoris were recorded bilaterally with surface electromyography in standing PD patients with camptocormia (n = 10) and matched healthy controls (n = 10) who mimicked the patients' posture...

The aim of this article is to provide a review of the use of injections of botulinum toxin in the management of selected symptoms and signs of Parkinson's disease and other forms of parkinsonism. Sialorrhea is defined as inability to control oral secretions, resulting in excessive saliva in the oropharynx. There is a high level of evidence for the treatment of sialorrhea in parkinsonism with injections of different forms of botulinum toxin type A as well as botulinum toxin type B. Tremor can be improved by the use of botulinum toxin injections but improved tremor control often leads to concomitant motor weakness, limiting its use...

BACKGROUND: Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has recently been reported to be effective for truncal postural abnormalities such as camptocormia and Pisa syndrome in Parkinson's disease. In this case report, we describe a case of a woman with Parkinson's disease in whom SCS was effective for painful camptocormia with Pisa syndrome. CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of painful camptocormia. She had noticed resting tremor in the left upper limb and aprosody at 48 years of age...

BACKGROUND: Camptocormia is severe flexion of the thoracolumbar spine, exaggerated during standing and walking but minimized in supine position. Even though camptocormia is a relatively common condition during the course of Parkinson's disease, there is ongoing controversy concerning its mechanisms. The most widely accepted and yet still disputed one is dystonia. However, based on myopathic changes observed in the paraspinal muscle biopsies of some PD patients with camptocormia, the attempt to attribute camptocormia to myopathy has continued...

This is an observational cross-sectional study evaluating gait dynamics in patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) and severe postural deformities, PD without axial deviations and healthy subjects. Ten PS individuals with Pisa syndrome (PS) and nine subjects with Camptocormia (CC) performed 3-D Gait Analysis and were evaluated with walking and balance scales. Correlations with clinical and functional scales were investigated. Spatio-temporal and kinematic data were compared to ten PD subjects without postural deformities (PP) and ten healthy matched individuals (CG)...

Paraspinous myopathy is a rare neuromuscular disorder characterized by selective involvement of the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar muscles. Leading clinical features include a bent spine or dropped head (antecollis). In myasthenia gravis (MG), patients may have camptocormia secondary to neuromuscular junction dysfunction of the paraspinal muscles, and this condition usually responds to acetylcholinesterase inhibitors or immunosuppressive treatments. However, concomitant MG and paraspinous myopathy with histologic and electrophysiologic evidence of myopathic changes of the paraspinal muscles has only been reported twice in the literature...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Though striatal and postural deformities are known to occur commonly in atypical Parkinsonism patients, these may also be seen in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). These are frequently misdiagnosed as joint or orthopaedic pathology leading to unnecessary investigations. This study was conducted to observe the various striatal and postural deformities among patients with PD in India. METHODS: This study was conducted at a tertiary care teaching institute in north# India...
