Abstract

We present a patient with severe life-threatening dyskinesias due to a persistent microlesion effect after STN-DBS electrode implantation. The pallidofugal pathways were identified using patient-specific tractography, and steering the current toward this white matter structure resulted in complete resolution of the severe dyskinesias.
