Currently, deep brain stimulation (DBS) is the safest and the most effective surgical treatment for Parkinson??s disease (PD). However, there is no general consensus on whether subthalamic nucleus (STN) or globus pallidus internus (GPi) is the best target for PD. Generally, bilateral GPi-DBS is the preferred rational surgical strategy for dystonic symptom in PD. However our case proved that bilateral STN-DBS could significantly improve off-dystonia symptoms for PD having severe generalized off-dystonia symptoms with dopamine response. Therefore, STN-DBS can be considered as treatment for generalized off-dystonia in PD patients with levodopa response.
