Atypical Parkinsonism disorders are a group of diseases linked to a lack of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine controls movement. While Parkinson’s is the most common Parkinsonism, approximately 20 percent*  of people will be diagnosed with another Parkinson’s–like condition. These conditions are often difficult to differentiate from Parkinson’s disease and each other. They include multiple system atrophy (MSA), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).
