Abstract
Pathologic gambling (PG) is an impulse control disorder (ICD) or dopamine dysregulation syndrome (DDS) in patients with Parkinson disease (PD). ICD/DDS is presumed to be related to dopaminergic treatment in PD. Although increasing number of patients with ICD/DDS is being reported, ICD/DDS such as PG has not been reported in Korean PD patients. We describe a PD patient who developed PG secondary to dose adjustment of levodopa and pramipexole. His symptoms was controlled by reducing the dopaminergic drugs and adding a small amount of atypical antipsychotics. KeyWords:Impulse control disorder, Pathologic gambling, Dopaminergic medication
