We evaluated levels of serum neurofilament light chains (NfL), a known biomarker of neuroaxonal damage, in patients with cervical dystonia (CD) and healthy controls (HCs). CD patients had normal NfL levels supporting the hypothesis that CD may be considered as a functional network disorder rather than as a neurodegenerative disease.
