Comparison in efficacy of dopaminergic therapy between a group of Parkinson’s disease patients and a group of patients with vascular parkinsonism.

Nowadays it is a common experience in general in medical practice and more for neurologists that there is an increasing incidence of signs of cerebral vascular minimal damage detected by radiologic investigations performed occasionally or not in the common population diffusely in age range, even involving young people. Therefore we decided to observe if there could be any statistic linkage between vascular disease and Parkinson Disease. In a previous study a first step consisted in showing a statistical significant incidence of cerebral vasculopathy in a group of patients affected by Parkinson Disease.
