Abstract

This article presents a nongeneticist's guide to understanding the genetics of Parkinson disease (PD), including clinical diagnostic criteria, differential diagnoses, symptom management, when to suspect a hereditary factor, a summary of autosomal dominant and recessive PD genes, and proposed algorithm for genetic testing. There is increasing availability of genetic testing for PD but there are few recommendations on how these tests should be used in clinical practice. This article guides clinicians on the overall management of patients with PD, with emphasis on determining which patients should have genetic testing and how to interpret the results.
