Few detailed clinico-pathological correlations of Parkinson's disease have been published. The pathological findings in 100 patients diagnosed prospectively by a group of consultant neurologists as having idiopathic Parkinson's disease are reported. Seventy six had nigral Lewy bodies, and in all of these Lewy bodies were also found in the cerebral cortex. In 24 cases without Lewy bodies, diagnoses included progressive supranuclear palsy, multiple system atrophy, Alzheimer's disease, Alzheimer… Expand
Improved accuracy of clinical diagnosis of Lewy body Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
Assessment of the clinical features suggests that an accuracy of 90% may be the highest that can be expected using current diagnostic criteria for idiopathic PD. Expand
A clinicopathologic study of 100 cases of Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The clinical details of 100 cases of histologically confirmed Parkinson's disease were examined and correlated with pathologic findings, finding the general pattern of disease conformed to traditional descriptions, and the findings broaden the present clinical and pathologic spectrum of Parkinson's Disease. Expand
Diagnosis and Differential Diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
Diagnostic criteria mainly focussing on the diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson’s disease (iPD) are summarized and specific factors to differentiate this disorder from other disease entities are delineated. Expand
1 Diagnosis and Differential Diagnosis of Parkinson ’ s Disease
Parkinsonian syndromes are a heterogeneous entity of movement disorders, which can be subdivided into idiopathic Parkinson’s disease, rare genetic forms of Parkinson’s disease as well as symptomaticExpand
The differential diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The diagnosis of Parkinson's disease continues to be challenging with misdiagnosis rates as high as 20-30% in early stages, largely due to failure to recognize atypical parkinsonian disorders including multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration and dementia with Lewy bodies.

Clinical diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. Proposal of diagnostic subgroups classified at different levels of confidence
TLDR
The objective of this paper is to evaluate the accuracy of conventional diagnostic criteria for Parkinson's disease and give an overview of alternative causes to parkinsonian syndromes, and propose criteria for diagnostic subgroups of the disease classified at different levels of confidence. Expand
The role of functional neuroimaging in the differential diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson’s disease and multiple system atrophy
TLDR
A review of different PET imaging methods for the differential diagnosis of PD and MSA patients using positron emission tomography as the established method. Expand
'Atypical' Parkinson's disease - sporadic.
TLDR
This chapter discusses those "atypical" symptom constellations that complicate the differential diagnosis of PD versus atypical parkinsonism and illustrates additional considerations that might be helpful to achieve a correct diagnosis. Expand
Morphological substrates of parkinsonism with and without dementia: a retrospective clinico-pathological study.

TLDR
Clinico-pathological studies in DBL, demented and nondemented PD, and AD cases showed a negative relation between cognitive impairment and Alzheimer changes, suggesting that these either alone or in combination with cortical Lewy body pathologies are major causes of cognitive dysfunction. Expand
The accuracy of diagnosis of parkinsonian syndromes in a specialist movement disorder service.
TLDR
The clinical and pathological diagnoses of 143 cases of parkinsonism seen by neurologists associated with the movement disorders service at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London suggest that neurologists with particular expertise in the field of movement disorders may be using a method of pattern recognition for diagnosis which goes beyond that inherent in any formal set of diagnostic criteria.

Clinical and pathological aspects of parkinsonism in Alzheimer's disease. A role for extranigral factors?
TLDR
To examine the natural history and pathogenesis of parkinsonism in Alzheimer's disease, 44 subjects with clearly established senile dementia of the Alzheimer type were studied during a 66-month period; the chief clinical features of both types were bradykinesia and rigidity, but not resting tremor.

Clinically atypical expression of pathologically typical Lewy-body parkinsonism.
TLDR
It is concluded that the clinical spectrum of Lewy-body PD is wider than is generally assumed and that the diagnosis of pathologically typical Parkinson's disease cannot be excluded on clinical grounds alone. Expand

Associated pathological findings suggest that cases of incidental Lewy body disease are presymptomatic cases of Parkinson's disease, and confirm the importance of age (time) in the evolution of the disease. Expand

TLDR
The clinical and pathological features of 10 cases of striatonigral degeneration are described: 5 were misdiagnosed in life as Parkinson's disease, and correlation was found between the neuronal counts in caudate:putamen, striatum:nigra compacta, globus pallidus: nigra Compacta, nigra compactA:locus coeruleus.

The purpose of the meeting was to identify the most important scientific research opportunities and the crucial clinical and technical issues that influence the progress of research on the diagnosis of AD. Expand
Parkinsonism: onset, progression, and mortality
TLDR
Controversy over the effectiveness of therapeutic measures for parkinsonism is due partially to this wide variability and to the paucity of clinical information about the natural history of the syndrome. Expand

TLDR
The degree of dementia of the patients had a negative correlation with the number of medial neurons, suggesting that degeneration of the nigrostriatal neurons may contribute as a subcortical component to dementia in PD patients. Expand
New developments in the pathology of Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Quantitative morphological studies in PD indicate that in addition to nigrostriatal dopaminergic pathways, other dopamineergic, noradrenergic, serotonergic, and cholinergic systems are involved, causing multiple neuromediator dysfunctions. Expand
