Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurogenerative disease, which causes motoric disorders, and the risk of developing PD increases with age. There is an increasing number of persons above 60 years undergoing anaesthesia, and PD is becoming a common comorbidity. PD symptoms, delayed medicine administration or medical side effects can complicate anaesthesia. The importance of correct administration of PD medication administration must be emphasized to avoid complications. Optimized perioperative care can potentially prevent complicated and prolonged admission periods.
