Resumen

Objective: We talk about advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) when conventional therapy does not provide motor control. Praxis alterations have been described in these patients as part of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) from early stages. The objective of this work is to determine the difference between praxis alterations and the subtype of DCL in a group of patients with advanced PD. Methodology: cross-sectional observational-analytical design in patients with PD examined in consultation for neuropsychological evaluation in 2014. The diagnostic categories were compared according to the apraxic predominance. In addition, we explored if there was a relationship between praxis alterations and posterior cortical vs. frontosubcortical predominance. Three groups were categorized: group 1) Non-amnestic-executive monodomain DCL, group 2) Apraxic and executive dominance multi-domain DCL, and group 3) Multi-domain DCL --with more than two altered cognitive domains--. Results: there was a greater predominance of body and visuoconstructional apraxies in groups 2 and 3. The findings show differences when comparing praxical abilities between subgroups (p
