Abstract—Although Cervical Dystonia (CD) is regarded as the most common type of focal dystonia, the therapeutic options available for CD are remarkably limited and are unsatisfactory for many patients. Recent functional and clinical studies have made great progress in unraveling the mechanisms underlying CD and other types of dystonia. Much research is still needed; however, the deeper understanding of the etiology of CD is expected to lead to better management of dystonia symptoms and the development of novel therapeutic options. The objective of this review was to summarize the most recent studies examining the pathophysiological features of CD, including genetic mutations, studies about neuronal signaling, and metabolomic studies.

Keywords—cervical dystonia, torticollis, genetic mutations, neuronal signaling, metabolomic studies
