Parkinson disease

Parkinson disease is a progressive disease of the nervous system. Trembling or shaking of a leg is often the first sign of Parkinson disease, especially when the body is at rest. Parkinson disease can also influence emotions and reasoning skills, as well as cognitive skills. People with Parkinson disease are also at risk of dementia, which is a decline in cognitive functions including judgment and memory. Parkinson's disease that starts after age 50 is generally classified as late-onset disease. Early-onset cases that begin before age 20 are often referred to as juvenile-onset Parkinson disease.
