Motor impairment influences Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue test error scores in Parkinson's disease patients



Motor impairment influences Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue test error scores in Parkinson's disease patients



Journal of the Neurological Sciences 213(1-2): 61-65



Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue test (FMT) error scores and peg insertion abilities significantly differ between Parkinson's disease (PD) patients and controls. Both tasks ask for performance of voluntary movements. The objective of this study was to demonstrate a relation between FMT error scores and peg insertion outcomes. We successively performed both tasks in 28 previously untreated PD patients. The FMT error score was significantly (p=0.016) lower in patients with better peg insertion outcome. A significant (Spearman R=0.47, p=0.012) correlation between peg insertion results and the FMT error scores appeared. Motor impairment influences FMT error scores in PD patients.
