EAN 2023 | Evaluation of non-neurological symptoms in a movement disorder assessment

Matej Skorvanek, MD, PhD, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University, Košice, Slovakia, describes the key questions that should be asked when evaluating non-neurological symptoms during a movement disorder assessment. Firstly, it is important to distinguish if a patient’s symptoms come solely from a movement disorder or if it is also due to an underlying non-neurological condition. Secondly, there must be clarification if there is a direct link between these two conditions or if they exist separately. Lastly, the significance of systemic changes, especially in younger patients, who often have genetic predispositions, must be considered. Prof. Skorvanek’s insights highlight the importance of considering genetic factors in the diagnosis of complex movement disorders. This interview took place at the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) 2023 Congress in Budapest, Hungary.
