Hemiparkinsonism with hemiatrophy (HP-HA) syndrome is characterized by a predominant unilateral parkisonism associated with ipsilateral body and/or contralateral brain abnormality. We report three cases of Hemiparkinsonism- hemiatrophy, which is a rare form of secondary parkinsonism. One patient revealed motor complication in the involved limb suggesting that the degeneration of nigrostriatal pathway as the underlying mechanism in this disorder. The functional neuro-imaging can play an important role to verify the cortical abnormalities when structural changes are not evident in brain MRI.
