“Lubag,” or Filipino X-linked dystonia, typically presents with either pure dystonia (that inexorably becomes generalized) or combined dystonia–parkinsonism. We report on three cases of Lubag presenting with isolated parkinsonism without dystonia or late-onset dystonia and a slower course. © 2001 Movement Disorder Society.
