Question about Parkinson's plus syndromeIs there any treatment for Parkinson's Plus syndrome?
There are many Parkinson's plus syndromes; treatment is usually symptomatic rather than curative and the options depend upon the exact diagnosis which may be subject to a range of opinion (proof of diagnosis is only at autopsy). It's often good to offer standard Parkinson's disease treatment in case it is an odd-looking case of Parkinson's disease.
