Question about Parkinson's plus syndromewhat is this condition?
Parkinson's is a challenging diagnosis which can be proved only at autopsy. In a living person experts try to keep an open mind over time. Some things like abnormal eye movements, bladder and sexual difficulty, low blood pressure, are not usually seen in Parkinson's and these additional features often lead to a label of "Parkinson's plus syndrome". Sometimes it is pragmatic to treat for Parkinson's disease even when these additional features are present as not all patients fir the textbook stereotype.
