The clinical impact of cognitive anosognosia in Parkinson’s disease

Takeaway

  • Cognitive anosognosia was associated with greater frontal dysfunction and lower rates of depression in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD).

Why this matters

  • Cognitive anosognosia, an impaired ability of patients to recognize the presence or severity of their deficits, is associated with cognitive dysfunction and behavioral disturbances.

  • Early identification of cognitive anosognosia in PD is important for patient management and prognosis.
