L-Dopa-responsive Parkinson's syndrome in association with phenylketonuria: In vivo dopamine transporter and D2 receptor findings.

Abstract

Reports of parkinsonism in phenylketonuria are exceedingly rare. We report on a patient who had received a delayed diagnosis of phenylketonuria as an infant and subsequently developed levodopa-responsive parkinsonism at the age of 33. Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) using (123)I-FP-CIT ([(123))I]-2 beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-(-4-iodophenyl… (More)
