Abstract

The clinical features of progressive supranuclear palsy can be subtle, particularly in the early stages, and provide opportunities for misdiagnosis.

Article Extract

Progressive supranuclear palsy (or Steele–Richardson–Olszewski syndrome) is a rare neurological disorder. It is sometimes misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease: about 6% of patients initially suspected of Parkinson’s disease may actually have progressive supranuclear palsy.
