Abstract

Parkinson disease (PD) is a complex of motor and nonmotor symptoms. Among the nonmotor symptoms, urinary and sexual dysfunctions are common and negatively affect the quality of life. More than 50% of patients with PD complain of urinary dysfunction and 20% have sexual dysfunction. Understanding the anatomy and physiology of the urogenital system informs the rationale for the mechanism of action of drug therapies. The management of urinary and sexual dysfunction in PD, including behavioral, medical, and procedural interventions, is reviewed in this article.
