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.

Is there any treatment for Parkinson's Plus syndrome?

Dr. Giles Elrington

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.
