Links to Parkinsons

Anyone know if Cavernomas can develop into Parkinsons? My first MRI resulted in the find of my Cavernoma. No symptoms and discharged. However I got increasingly worse and 18 months after my MRI I was diagnosed with Parkinsons. Think there's s link?

  • I think coincidental. I had numerous MRI scans following bleed from pons cavernoma and was told I had MS.

  • Hello. At present it is unknown as to whether there is link between Parkinsons and cavernoma. You may find Parkinson's UK a helpful organisation, if you haven't already contacted them at parkinsons.org.uk . Also, Cavernoma Alliance UK could provide information and support for you.
