BACKGROUND Rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder occurs with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) and often precedes PD. Its frequency in LRRK2-PD and utility as a preclinical marker has not been established. METHODS One hundred forty-four idiopathic PD, 142 LRRK2 G2019S mutation PD, 117 non-manifesting carriers, 93 related noncarriers, and 40 healthy(More)
