Lobo R, Fraser A, Kiely P, Boers P. Parkinsonism can be cured. BMJ Case Rep. 2013;2013.
This case describes a woman with a history of rheumatoid arthritis with secondary vasculitic skin ulcers, Sicca syndrome and idiopathic Parkinson's disease that was diagnosed by a neurologist in 2005. The patient's parkinsonian symptoms were difficult to control, despite the use of antiparkinsonian medications. During a regular clinical review in 2011, the patient's rheumatologist had prescribed cyclophosphamide infusions to help with the vasculitic skin ulcers. Over the following 2 months, the patient's parkinsonian symptoms completely resolved.
