&NA; Many authorities have drawn attention to the difficulties in clinically distinguishing Parkinson's disease (PD) from other parkinsonian syndromes. We assessed the clinical features of 100 patients diagnosed prospectively by a group of consultant neurologists as having idiopathic PD according to their pathologic findings. Seventy‐six percent of these cases were confirmed to have PD. By using selected criteria (asymmetrical onset, no atypical features, and no possible etiology for another… Expand

Observational Clinical Trial
Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) present an impaired intestinal permeability with consequent lipopolysaccharide (LPS) translocation in the systemic circulation. Plasmatic… Expand

How valid is the clinical diagnosis of Parkinson's disease in the community?
TLDR
At least 15% of patients with a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease in the population do not fulfil strict clinical criteria for the disease, and approximately 20% of Patients with Parkinson's Disease who have already come to medical attention have not been diagnosed as such. Expand
SIC Task Force appraisal of clinical diagnostic criteria for parkinsonian disorders
TLDR
This review summarizes the findings of the SIC Task Force for the study of diagnostic criteria for parkinsonian disorders in the areas of Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, progressive supranuclear palsy, multiple system atrophy, and corticobasal degeneration. Expand
Automated Differential Diagnosis of Early Parkinsonism Using Metabolic Brain Networks: A Validation Study
TLDR
An initial study developed a probabilistic algorithm to classify subjects with clinical parkinsonism but uncertain diagnosis based on the expression of metabolic covariance patterns for IPD, MSA, and PSP that can improve the diagnostic accuracy in patients with parkinsonist disease, even at early disease stages. 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
Clinical characteristics in early Parkinson's disease in a central California population‐based study
TLDR
This study represents the most extensive phenotypic description of rural U.S. residents in the initial stages of PD who were recruited in a population‐based manner and future follow-up may provide valuable information regarding the prognostic indication of these symptoms/signs and improve the understanding of the underlying etiology of PD. Expand
Accuracy of clinical diagnosis of Parkinson disease
TLDR
The overall validity of clinical diagnosis of PD is not satisfying, particularly in the early stages of disease, where response to dopaminergic treatment is less defined and hallmarks of alternative diagnoses such as atypical parkinsonism may not have emerged. Expand
Evolution of cognitive dysfunction in an incident Parkinson's disease cohort.
TLDR
This work clarifies the profile of cognitive dysfunction in early PD and demonstrates that the dementing process in this illness is heralded by both postural and gait dysfunction and cognitive deficits with a posterior cortical basis, reflecting probable non-dopaminergic cortical Lewy body pathology. Expand
Significance of MRI in Diagnosis and Differential Diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
Research findings on the value of MRI techniques in the differential diagnosis of neurodegenerative parkinsonian disorders are reviewed to highlight the need for early differentiation between PD and APDs. Expand

TLDR
A thorough understanding of the broad spectrum of clinical manifestations of PD is essential to the proper diagnosis of the disease and genetic mutations or variants, neuroimaging abnormalities and other tests are potential biomarkers that may improve diagnosis and allow the identification of persons at risk.
