 **Parkinson’s Disease Dementia** (PDD) is a form of dementia that develops after the diagnosis of [[geri:​parkinsons|Parkinson'​s Disease]]. Patients with PD have an almost six-fold increased risk of developing dementia. By definition, Parkinson'​s disease dementia is cognitive decline that occurs //after// the onset of Parkinson'​s disease. **Parkinson’s Disease Dementia** (PDD) is a form of dementia that develops after the diagnosis of [[geri:​parkinsons|Parkinson'​s Disease]].

Delirium and neurocognitive impairments due to side effects of dopamine-blocking drugs and other medical conditions (e.g., sedation or impaired cognition, severe hypothy roidism, Bi2deficiency) must also be ruled out. Sometimes it may be clinically difficult to distinguish between Parkinsons'​s dementia and delirium, and patients must be followed longitudinally.   * Other medical conditions and [[cl:​1-delirium|delirium]].
