Abstract

Akathisia, a movement disorder characterized by motor restlessness, is iatrogenically induced in patients on neuroleptic drugs. Historically, it is also described in idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD). This is the first study, to our knowledge, to use the complete Braude/Barnesakathisia inventory, a standardized rating instrument, in a PD sample. Nineteen subjects from the outpatient movement disorders clinics of two metropolitan teaching hospitals were examined for akathisia using the Braude/Barnes akathisia inventory (1983 version). Subjects were also rated on severity of Parkinsonian symptoms, severity of depressive symptoms, and cognitive tasks using standardized instruments. Charts were then reviewed for demographic variables, medications, and chief complaint on initial presentation and at the time of study. Analysis of the Braude/Barnes inventory revealed high internal consistency among items in component 1, the putative akathisia syndrome (alpha = 0.806). When subjects were ranked according to scores on component 1, two distinct groups emerged. Eighteen subjects were categorized as the akathisia group (n = 7, or 38.7%) or the nonakathisia group (n = 11). Subjects in the akathisia group were more likely to have had a chief complaint of tremor or gait instability either at presentation or at the time of study. There were no significant differences between groups on other parameters. Akathisia is a definable clinical syndrome in PD. This study corroborates evidence for akathisia in PD described in previous studies that did not use standardized rating scales. Further studies tovalidate the syndrome in this population are warranted.
