PMID: 36728838.


Botulinum toxin type A is widely used for the treatment of spasticity, focal dystonia, hemifacial spasm, hyperhidrosis, strabismus, chronic migraine, and also cosmetic purposes. Therapeutic use is commonly effective and safe. However, if toxin enters the vascular space and gets through to peripheral cholinergic nerve terminals, it may lead to iatrogenic botulism.
