Episode 158: Atypical Parkinsonism Series: Overview, Diagnosis and Prevalence

Considered “atypical Parkinsonian syndromes,” over half of people with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD)/corticobasal syndrome (CBS), and multiple system atrophy (MSA) are initially misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) due to similarities in early symptoms as well as lack of awareness of these rare, neurodegenerative diseases among many healthcare professionals and the general public. 

This is the first of three podcast episodes within our atypical parkinsonism podcast series, organized in partnership with CurePSP and designed to address the overview, treatment and care of PSP, CBD and MSA. 

In this first episode of the series, Dr. Alex Pantelyat, Associate Professor of Neurology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine shares an overview of atypical parkinsonism, overlaps and differences with Parkinson's disease, the red flags and how PSP, CBD and MSA are diagnosed.

Dr. Pantelyat has disclosed that he is a Scientific Advisory Board Consultant for MedRhythms, Inc. and a consultant for both Ferrer Internacional, S.A. and SciNeuro Pharmaceuticals. 

Podcast host, Dan Keller, has disclosed that he has no relevant financial disclosures.
