Urodynamic findings in 30 patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) were compared to those in 32 patients suffering from Multisystemic Atrophy (MSA). An attempt is made to establish the possible role and reliability of a combined neuro-urologic evaluation in these two categories of patients. Results show a high incidence of detrusor hyperreflexia in MSA patients and a high incidence of delayed or incomplete relaxation of the perineal muscular floor in PD patients. Although results refer to a limited number of patients, a possible difference in the behaviour of the detrusor-sphincterial complex in these conditions, may exist.
