AbstractParkinson's disease is a chronic disabling condition with specific histopathological findings. No cure is yet available although treatment response can be remarkable. Family physicians are often faced with problematic issues on diagnosis and therapy when managing patients with Parkinson's disease. Levodopa is still the mainstay of treatment but its long-term use can be associated with considerable side-effects. We advocate the use of dopamine agonists as de novo therapy in younger onset patients. The application of stereotactic functional surgery has great potential in the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
