Myoclonus‐dystonia (M‐D) is a rare hyperkinetic movement disorder characterized by upper body–predominant myoclonus and dystonia.1 A large proportion of cases are caused by autosomal‐dominant inherited mutations in the SGCE gene. In addition to the motor manifestations, psychiatric disorders are frequently reported.2 Several studies have suggested that they may form a primary component of the M‐D phenotype.3, 4 This study represents the first long‐term follow‐up study of both motor and psychiatric symptomatology in adults with M‐D (SGCE mutation), providing further insights into the natural history of M‐D and enabling more prognostic information.
