Abstract

Young onset Parkinson's disease is more likely to be genetic than older onset Parkinson's disease, particularly with a positive family history, and there are also racial differences.(1 2) Both autosomal dominant and recessive causes of Parkinson's disease are described; analysis of family history data is instructive regarding genetic risk and likely inheritance patterns.
