Its worldwide prevalence varies from 18 to 418 per 100,000 populations. The incidence of the disease also varies and ranges from 4.9 to 26 per 100,000 per year. This widespread variation might be attributed to different populations, different methodology and diagnostic criteria. The clinical characteristics of patients suffering from PD in Isfahan have not been described previously.
