CAMPOS-SOUSA, Raimundo Nonato et al. Urinary symptoms in Parkinson's disease: prevalence and associated factors. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 2003, vol.61, n.2B, pp.359-363. ISSN 0004-282X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X2003000300007.

The authors present a cross-sectional study involving 61 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) who were consecutively examined and compared to a control group with 74 subjects. Only patients who fulfilled the standard diagnostic criteria for PD and whose brain magnetic resonance imaging was normal were included. The objective of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of inferior urinary tract symptoms in PD and to study the possible association between clinical factors to urinary dysfunction. ln the patient group, 39.3% presented urinary symptoms when compared to 10.8% in the control group. All symptomatic patients presented irritative symptoms. The most common irritative symptom PD was nocturia, followed by frequency and urinary incontinence. Around 25% of the patients presented functional obstructive symptoms determined by the disease. The most frequent obstructive symptom was incomplete emptying of the bladder. Only the age of the patients and control group were correlated with urinary dysfunction.

Palavras-chave : Parkinson's disease; urinary symptoms; autonomic symptoms.
