reported for 61%, and 45% had more than one symptom. Neither age, duration of disease, nor levodopa dosage correlated with NPI subscores. Hallucination, delusion, and agitation scores correlated with more advanced disease stage and cognitive impairment, and apathy with cognitive impairment. Compared with AD, PD patients with a similar level of dementia had significantly higher hallucination scores and a nonsignificant trend toward higher depression scores than AD patients, whereas AD patients had higher scores on most other items (61). The NPI profile of this PD population has also been used for direct comparisons with DLB and PSP patients.
