MDS 2022 | Is the clinical phenomenologist obsolete in movement disorders?

Kailash Bhatia, MBBS, FRCP, FAAN, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, London, UK, discusses the relevance of clinical phenomenology in movement disorders. Advances in the field, particularly in genetics, have brought difficulties regarding phenotype and genotype correlations, leading to increased concerns from clinicians about their role in the diagnostic process. However, at the moment, the clinician continues to have a prominent role as it has to make sense of the results. Additionally, genetic results are sometimes misleading; in these cases, the clinician has to decide whether or not the genetic variant is applicable. This interview took place at the 2022 International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders in Madrid, Spain.
