Although motor problems such as parkinsonism, chorea, dystonia, tremor, or gait impairment are generally the predominant characteristics of diseases categorized as 'movement disorders,' dementia forms a core element or an accompanying feature in several movement disorders. Recently, there has been greater recognition of the importance of nonmotor features such as cognitive impairment in movement disorders. This article reviews select movement disorders associated with dementia or cognitive impairment.
