Patients with early Parkinson’s disease (PD) may not complain of gait difficulties but subtle gait abnormalities may be revealed as part of a “preclinical gait syndrome” when they are challenged by dual tasks. 21 early PD patients (n = 21, mean age 63.5 years, H&Y 1.62, disease duration <5 years, mean UPDRS-III 7.7) who did not have gait complaints were as compared to age- and gender-matched healthy controls (n = 21).
