Özet

Purpose: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic progressive disorder which is characterized by rest tremor, akinesia or bradykinesia and rigidity. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is caused by compression of median nerve and can occur as a result of repetitive trauma. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of CTS in PD and evaluate the median nerve sonographically.
