    Parkinsons and seizures
    An_221503 posted:
    My father has had PD for 2 1/2 years. His falls have increased and he broke his hip in Sept. He was just hospitalized for seizures over the weekend. No one is sure whether the seizures are related to PD or to an infection. Any answers?
    Mark A Stacy, MD responded:
    Parkinson's Disease is not associated with seizures. However, some people with parkinsonism, may have had a stroke or other brain disease that can cause a seizure. It would be helpful to have a brain scan to assess these possibilities. The infection or another medical problem would be more likely to cause a seizure.
