Parkinson disease (PD), also known as paralysis agitans, is a common neurodegenerative disorder. In patients with PD and other extrapyramdial disorders, respiratory problems commonly contribute to morbidity and mortality and all physicians who are interested in this field must be able to do proper management of them. Pulmonary function assessment is recommended in PD, irrespective of severity of disease.
