Lubag disease (DYT3), an X-linked neurodegenerative condition featuring dystonia and parkinsonism, is caused by mutations in the TAF1 gene.1 DYT3 has been reported to respond to globus pallidus interna (GPi) deep brain stimulation (DBS) using frequencies above 100 Hz (table). We describe the first case of DYT3 responding to high pulse width and low-frequency stimulation.
