Abstract: 

Meige's syndrome is a type of segmental cranial dystonia characterized by blepharospasm and oromandibular dystonia, often complicated with abnormal movement of maxillofacial and cervical muscles. Current treatments for Meige's syndrome include oral medications, botulinum toxin, and deep brain stimulation (DBS). However, these therapies were reported to either have unstable efficacy or cause unwanted side effects, or be invasive. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation method which has been successfully used in movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease. However, whether it can be used in Meige's syndrome remains unknown. Here, we report the successful treatment of Meige's syndrome with navigated rTMS in a patient with Meige's syndrome who is refractory to oral medication.
