Abstract

We report successful treatment of paroxysmal dystonia (tonic seizures) in three patients with central demyelinating disease (CDD) using acetazolamide alone or in combination with carbamazepine. Acetazolamide is a useful alternative, or an adjunct, to carbamazepine in the treatment of paroxysmal dystonia in CDD.
