  • Parkinson disease 23, autosomal recessive, early onset (PARK23) [MIM:616840]: An autosomal recessive, early-onset form of Parkinson disease, a complex neurodegenerative disorder characterized by bradykinesia, resting tremor, muscular rigidity and postural instability, as well as by a clinically significant response to treatment with levodopa. The pathology involves the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra and the presence of Lewy bodies (intraneuronal accumulations of aggregated proteins), in surviving neurons in various areas of the brain. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:26942284}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
