Diagnostic criteria for Parkinson's disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The diagnosis of Parkinson's disease is not easy. Developments in basic research have indicated pathophysiological links among parkinsonian syndromes that are still classified as independent entities. On the other hand, genetic studies are dividing forms that fit into the clinical diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. The diagnostic criteria used in current practice are by no means satisfactory, but cannot yet be replaced by new comprehensive criteria based on laboratory evidence.
