Abstract / Description of output

Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), an atypical parkinsonian syndrome characterized by extrapyramidal features, imbalance, supranuclear gaze paresis and dementia, can be difficult to diagnose, especially in the early stages. From the clinician's point of view, the main difficulty with this disorder is the inability to provide an accurate diagnosis, at least for the initial stages of the disease, where symptoms are often confused with other parkinsonian disorders. This inability complicates the recruitment of patients with early-stage parkinsonism to trials of disease-modifying therapy.
