Abstract

Two patients with postpolio syndrome are presented. The first case developed mild Parkinson's syndrome, for which she was treated with a levodopa/carbidopa combination followed by the institution of deprenyl. An unexpected improvement in the symptoms of postpolio syndrome was noted. The second patient who was unaffected by Parkinson's syndrome was started on deprenyl alone and reported a similar improvement in symptomatology
