Parkinson disease

 

Parkinson's disease is a common disorder in neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington's disease or Alzheimer's. As such, this disorder causes progressive deterioration of certain brain functions in patients who present with various symptoms: tremors in the arms, legs and face; stiffness of limbs; impaired balance and movement; depression; slurred speech; urinary problems; among others. Depending on the patient and the level of involvement of the disease will manifest one or other more or less serious way. Typically, this condition develops slowly in people from 55 to 65 years of age, and treatment is based on symptom control as there is no cure for Parkinson's disease.
