Show Summary Details


A wide variety of acquired medical conditions can cause parkinsonian syndromes, and they are outlined in the immediately preceding chapters. The commonest is drug-induced parkinsonism, resulting from dopamine receptor blocking or dopamine store-depleting medications. This chapter consists of a miscellaneous group of unrelated acquired disorders which are, generally speaking, uncommon causes of akinetic–rigid syndromes.
