Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a degenerative brain disorder. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish from Parkinson’s disease, especially in the early stages. PSP symptoms are rigidity and akinesia, difficulty looking up and down, and problems with speech and balance. People with PSP often have poor response to anti-Parkinson medications.
