Objective: To study if there were intercultural differences in the prevalence of these impulse control disorders in PD.
Background: Impulse control disorders (ICD) era common in Parkinson’s disease (PD), usually secondary to dopaminergic replacement therapy and especially with dopominergic agonists. There are several subtypes of TCI, the most studied being hypersexuality, compulsive shopping, compulsive eating and pathological gambling.
Methods: Systematic search with search terms: Parkinson’s disease, impulse control disorder, hypersexuality, pathological gambling, compulsive eating, compulsive shopping. Only papers with more than 50 patients were selected.
Results: We have found 16 papers that meet the search criteria, eight from Europe, four from American and four from Asian. By countries, the most frequent ICD have been: hypersexuality in Spain, Finland, Denmark, China and Brazil; in Italy and the United States, in a study compulsive eating in another compulsive purchase; in France, Mexico, Korea and Malaysia, compulsive food; and in Japan, same incidence of hypersexuality and gambling.
