Congenital mirror movements From piano player to opera singer

Abstract : Congenital mirror movements (CMM) disorder is characterized by involuntary movements of one side of the body that accompany and mirror intentional movements on the opposite side (OMIM #157600).(1) CMM mostly involve the hands, and affected subjects are unable to perform pure unimanual movements or skilled dissociated movements of the 2 hands. We show a 33-year-old patient with CMM with no abnormality in DCC or RAD51, the known culprit genes (video on the Neurology (R) Web site at Neurology.org).(2) He had always dreamed of becoming a piano player but was unable to play properly with both hands despite intensive training. He became an opera singer instead.
