-**Corticobasal Degeneration** (CBD) is an neurodegenerative disorder, classified as an atypical parkinsonian syndrome (also known as one of the Parkinson'​s-plus syndromes). CBD was previously classified as a progressive asymmetric movement disorder characterized by akinesia, rigidity, dystonia, focal myoclonus, ideomotor apraxia, and/or alien-limb phenomena. However, it is increasingly seen as a disorder with cognitive and behavioural disturbances as well. The diagnosis of CBD remain challenging because there is considerable overlap between CBD pathology and other neurodegenerative disorders ​(including [[geri:​dementia:​progressive-supranuclear-palsy-psp|progressive supranuclear palsy]] (PSP), [[geri:​dementia:​alzheimers|]],​ and [[geri:​dementia:​frontotemporal|frontotemporal dementia]]).+**Corticobasal Degeneration** (CBD) is an neurodegenerative disorder, classified as an atypical parkinsonian syndrome (also known as one of the Parkinson'​s-plus syndromes).
