EAN 2023 | Skin conditions in movement disorders

Matej Skorvanek, MD, PhD, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University, Košice, Slovakia, discusses the correlation between skin disorders and movement disorders. Individuals with Parkinson’s disease commonly suffer from seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, and sometimes bullous pemphigoid. However, there is limited information on skin conditions in atypical parkinsonism. Regarding hyperkinetic disorders, specific skin conditions such as lipomas and angiokeratomas can point to mitochondrial disorders or Fabry disease. Prof. Skorvanek emphasizes that skin conditions can sometimes be the initial manifestation of a movement disorder or vice versa. Therefore, examining the skin is crucial in diagnosing these conditions. This interview took place at the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) 2023 Congress in Budapest, Hungary.
