Abstract: Introduction: The non-motor symptoms (NMSs) in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients have greater effects on their quality of life compared to the motor symptoms; however, they are under-recognized. The aim: The study aims to evaluate the prevalence and severity of NMS in newly diagnosed PD patients in Tanta University hospitals. Patients and methods: The study included 41 newly diagnosed PD patients. All patients were screened for NMS by the non-motor symptoms questionnaire (NMS-Quest). According to the NMS-Quest… Show more

“…This is in line with prevalence of anxiety among patients with PD by Broen et al and Leentjens et al ranging from 24.5 to 46.7 with GAD as the most common single disorder and 31.1% having mixed anxiety disorder [34,35]. In Egypt, Ragab and colleagues report anxiety prevalence around 30% [27], while in Spain and France the prevalence was 68.7% and 51%, respectively [30,31]. On the other hand, a Chinese study found the prevalence was much lower than others around 25.8% [36].…”

“…In two recent Egyptian studies, Shalash and colleagues [26] studied non-motor symptoms in 97 PD patients using BDI-score and found depression frequency at 76.7%. On the other hand, Ragab and colleagues found the prevalence at 47.5% [27]. Across literature, several studies [7,[28][29][30][31] found the prevalence of depression in PD was ranging from 32.6 to 41%.…”

“…Parkinson's Disease (PD) is the most frequent cause of Parkinsonism and is estimated to affect about nine million patients by the year 2030 [1]. Patients with PD experience a broad variety of non-motor symptoms (NMSs) that manifest as cognitive, neuropsychiatric, autonomic and sensory disorders; which worsen with the disease progression and constitute main determinants of their loss of independence [2].…”
