Parkinson's Disease and Nonmotor Dysfunction

Arch Neurol. 2006;63(4):623. doi:10.1001/archneur.63.4.623-a

edited by Ronald F. Pfeiffer, MD, and Ivan Bodis-Wollner, MD, DSc, 320 pp, with illus, $135, ISBN 1-58829-316-5, Totowa, NJ, Humana Press, 2005.

The field of Parkinson disease (PD) is rapidly expanding. While there are texts which cover movement disorders in general and those that deal with Parkinson disease alone, this book is billed as the first exclusively devoted to the nonmotor aspects of PD. According to the press release, it has “the most comprehensive and detailed coverage of nonmotor dysfunction in PD available.” I do not dispute this. Nonmotor dysfunction is an increasingly recognized area in PD and can be a major source of distress for patients with PD. Likewise, physicians who are comfortable primarily with the motor dysfunctions may not recognize or understand how to deal with various nonmotor features of the disease.
