Title: Clinical Predictors Of Cognitive Impairment And Psychiatric Complications In Parkinson’s Disease [preditores Clínicos De Transtorno Cognitivo E Complicações Psiquiátricas Na Doença De Parkinson]
Abstract: Objective: To estimate the clinical and demographics aspects that may contribute to cognitive impairment and psychiatric symptoms in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Method: All patients answered a structured standardized clinical questionnaire. Two movement disorders specialists performed the following scale: Unified Parkinson’s disease rating score (UPDRS), the modified Hoehn and Yahr staging, Schwab and England Scale, SCOPA cognition (SCOPA-COG), SCOPA-Psychiatric complications (SCOPA-PC) and Non-Motor Symptoms Scale (NMSS). We built a generalized linear model to assess predictors for the SCOPA-COG and SCOPA-PC scores. Results: Almost 37% of our patients were demented as per SCOPA-COG scores. Level of education and the UPDRS-Subscale III were predictors of cognitive impairment. Higher scores in domain 3 of NMSS and male gender were associated with psychiatric complications as assessed per the SCOPA-PC. Conclusion: Level of education and disease severity are predictors of dementia in PD. Psychiatric complications are more commonly observed in men. © 2015, Associacao Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria.
