Abstract

Botulinum neurotoxins inhibit the release from cholinergic nerve terminals of the sympathetic and parasympathetic autonomic nervous systems. This has clinical utility in treating conditions involving hyperactivity of the autonomic nervous system, including hyperhidrosis, hypersalivation and conditions of smooth muscle hyperactivity. These clinical uses of the neurotoxin are reviewed in this chapter.
