Abstract

Development of hypothyroidism may easily be overlooked when occurring together with Parkinson's disease (PD), because many of the symptoms of the two disorders are similar. We report on a case of a woman suffering from both PD and hypothyroidism and review the literature on the subject. © 2003 Movement Disorder Society
