Parkinson Disease

Abstract

Parkinson disease (PD), the second most-common neurodegenerative disease, is characterized by tremor, bradykinesia, and muscle rigidity. These characteristics, parkinsonism, may also be found in related diseases known as the Parkinson’s plus disorders and may be a component of numerous Mendelian conditions. The variety of inheritance patterns in familial parkinsonism includes autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, autosomal dominant with reduced penetrance, and increased susceptibility due to risk genes. Additionally since PD is a common disorder, family history can be complicated by the co-occurrence of both the genetic and sporadic forms of the disease in the same pedigree.
