ABSTRACT

An observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study of 175 patients with movement disorders who attended the Neurology Department in "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital was carried out from 2007 to 2010, aimed at describing the morbidity in them. These disorders began during the fifth and sixth decades of life in most of the members of the case material, with a higher frequency of Parkinson disease, the essential tremor and dystonias, and prevalence of the male sex and half-bred skin. The electromyography of the agonistic and antagonistic muscles evidenced the prevalence of the rest tremor and the disorder in the reciprocal inhibition, mainly in the Parkinson disease.


Key words: movement disorders, morbidity due to movement disorders, Parkinson disease, essential tremor, dystonias, electromyography, Neurology Department, secondary health care.
