Platysma dystonia is an involuntary movement of platysma muscle. It is a rare form of dystonia. In this case report, we would like to report a good result of peripheral nerve denervation for bilateral platysma dystonia case. A 58-years-old woman presented with an 8-years history of involuntary jerking movement of her bilateral platysma muscles. Oral medication was not effective. Microsurgical denervation of the facial nerves and its terminal branches to the platysma muscles were performed. Immediately after surgery, the patient showed considerable improvement. There were no complications. Selective peripheral denervation is useful for dystonia of the platysma muscles.
