Multiple movement disorders have endocrinologic underpinnings, either as secondary consequences of a common underlying pathology or as a result of a true causative role. This chapter reviews the current knowledge about endocrinologic influences on movement disorders, including Parkinson disease, Huntington disease, Tourette syndrome, dystonia, restless legs syndrome, and a variety of other disorders. We will additionally discuss directions for future research. © 2009, American Academy of Neurology.
