INTRODUCTION Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and visual hallucinations (VH) are common co-morbidities and risk factors for dementia in Parkinson's disease (PD). The relative value of each of them in the progression to dementia is unknown. We investigated cognitive impairment and cerebral hypometabolism in PD-MCI patients with VH (VH-positive) and without (VH-negative). METHODS Twenty-one PD-MCI patients (12 VH-negative, nine VH-positive) and 19 controls were studied using a comprehensive… CONTINUE READING
