Question:

I need information on Dystone a form of Parkinson`s Disease. Where can I find it?

Answer:

Dystonia can be a feature of typical Parkinson`s disease. However, I presume you are inquiring about the rare disorders where dystonia is a prominent component, with parkinsonian signs and symptoms mixed in. Two such entities are Rapid-onset Dystonia Parkinsonism and X-linked Dystonia Parkinsonism (also called Lubag). The weblink below gives you a background regarding these disorders.
