We review the etiological importance of the epidemic encephalitis for progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and addresses the question of whether the explosion of PSP literature in the mid‐20th century reflects the appearance of a new disease. We examined 2,000 studies on Parkinson's disease from 1861 to 1963 and found PSP‐like cases in the past, before the epidemic encephalitis era. It can be assumed that PSP is neither a new disease nor a variant of postencephalitic parkinsonism. © 2003… Expand
Progressive supranuclear palsy: A systematic review
TLDR
Recent advances in neuroradiological and instrumental examinations facilitate the diagnosis and have gained new insights into the pathophysiology of PSP, although the primary cause of the disease is unknown and disease-modifying drugs are not yet available. Expand

Fifty years of progressive supranuclear palsy
TLDR
This report fended off arguments that the condition in the patients they described reflected a genetic mutation or environmental toxin geographically confined to the Toronto area, and detailed the neuropathological changes in seven of them. Expand
Unravelling the tangled web of atypical parkinsonism
This thesis focuses on sporadic parkinsonian syndromes that are associated with neurofibrillary degeneration and the accumulation of abnormal tau protein in the brain. The classic clinicalExpand

TLDR
The intriguing suggestion that Charles Dickens may have been the first to describe someone with PSP in 1857 in his novel The lazy tour of two idle apprentices is made, and these quotes are certainly suggestive of a character with several features with more than a passing resemblance to PSP. Expand
Cause, seasonality of death and co-morbidities in progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP).
TLDR
Investigation of the causes and seasonality of death and co-morbid conditions among progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) patients found respiratory-related deaths were significantly more frequent in PSP when compared to PD patients. Expand

TLDR
Since 1990, rare genetic forms of Parkinson's disease were discovered, which accelerated progress in understanding pathogenesis, and established roles for alpha synuclein and the ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic system. Expand
Was the subject portrayed in “A Man” by Cornelis Anthonisz around 1530 really affected by progressive supranuclear palsy?
TLDR
Recently, LeWitt hypothesized that the subject in the portrait BA Man, painted by Cornelis Anthonisz around 1530, may have been affected by PSP, based on the recognition of some typical signs of this neurodegenerative disease in the subject of the painting. Expand
Complications of dopaminergic therapy.
TLDR
It is not uncommon for the dyskinesias to begin in the body region where the initial symptoms of Parkinson’s disease were first noted, suggesting a role for the severity of striatal denervation in this process. Expand

It is learned from experience that typhoid fever may be unattended with typhoid symptoms, or elevation of temperature, or intestinal lesions; exophthalmic goiter, thus, it not rarely happens that symptoms or lesions considered so distinctive as to be incorporated into the name given a disease, are found to be not invariably present, but are at times so ill developed as to been inconspicuous.
