Le forme neurovegetative si distinguono per il fatto che i movimenti distonici parossistici risultano meno frequenti rispetto alle altre forme di distonia, ma tra i sintomi si ricordano anche forte emicrania ed improvvisi attacchi epilettici. A tal proposito, le distonie parossistiche erano inizialmente considerate disturbi psicogeni o, ancora, forme epilettiche del sistema extrapiramidale. Gli scienziati si accingono a ricercare il gene implicato nella manifestazione delle distonie neurovegetative, al fine di trovare una valida terapia risolutiva. A loro volta, ognuna delle suddette categorie viene ulteriormente catalogata nelle forme genetiche-familiari e sporadiche. Distonia parossistica ipnogena: forma epilettica dei lobi frontali. Rara e assai improbabile la manifestazione della suddetta distonia neurovegetativa dopo i 30 anni; gli attacchi distonici interessano soprattutto gambe, braccia, tronco e volto, talvolta associati anche a deviazioni oculari.

J Psychosom Res. Neurovegetative dystonia--psychiatric evaluation of 40 patients diagnosed by general physicians in Brazil. Anecdotal evidence suggests that it is used to describe patients with a wide range of psychological and physical symptoms and is often used pejoratively, in a similar way to "crocks" in the USA.

Forty patients who had been diagnosed as having NVD by general physicians working in a triage department of a general public hospital were compared with 40 non-NVD patients, matched for age and gender, from the same department. Patients were evaluated by a psychiatrist who was blind to the diagnosis that had been made. Using the CIS, the "reported symptoms" that most distinguished NVD patients from controls were somatic and anxiety, whereas for "manifest abnormality" NVD patients displayed more anxiety, histrionic behavior, hypochondriasis, and depressive thoughts.

A total of The relative risk of NVD patients subsequently receiving a psychiatric disorder was 8. Although general physicians correctly identify most patients with psychiatric disorder they miss many others.

Furthermore, they use an obsolete diagnostic category which has no psychiatric currency. Medical students and residents need better psychiatric training so that they can correctly identify patients in general medical settings who are suffering from mental disorders and make a diagnosis using accepted psychiatric terminology.


Nervosité, anxiété, insomnie… peut-être une dystonie neurovégétative

Die vegetative Dystonie zeigt sich unterschiedlich. Eigentlich ist sie eine fehlgeleitete Spannung, die durch das vegetative Nervensystem Einfluss auf den Herzschlag, die Verdauung oder die Atmung nimmt. Viele Symptome treten oft gleichzeitig auf. Ein Ungleichgewicht zwischen dem Sympathikus und dem Parasympathikus kann eine vegetative Dystonie verursachen. In der Regel leiden diese dabei an einer starken inneren Unruhe und an einer Reizbarkeit. In der Regel kommt es dabei nicht zu weiteren Komplikationen.



General culture History biology Other phrases Literature Neurovegetative Dystonia: Symptoms, Causes and Treatment The Neurovegetative dystonia , Also called autonomic dysfunction or dysautonomia, is a very general term used to describe an alteration in the functioning of the autonomic nervous system or neurovegetative nervous system. It seems that this disease comes from"neurasthenia"a term used in the nineteenth century. People who suffered from it had unexplained symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, dizziness, and fainting.

The autonomic nervous system is composed of different elements that form a complex network of neural connections.
