Resumen

Background: The authors studied the measurement properties of the Parkinson's Disease-Cognitive Rating Scale (PD-CRS) compared with Movement Disorders Society Task Force (MDS-TF) criteria for the diagnosis of dementia in patients with Parkinson's disease. Methods: The sample consisted of 223 patients who were diagnosed in accordance with the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society Brain Bank who were assessed with both the MDS-TF and the PD-CRS criteria (in addition to other instruments) without the assessors' knowledge of previous results. Internal consistency was studied (homogeneity of the items and Guttmann's λ values were obtained) in addition to convergent, divergent, and discriminative validity. The receiver operating characteristic curve was obtained, and the cutoff point at which the PD-CRS had the greatest efficiency was analyzed. Results: The internal consistency was shown to be adequate, with a λ value of 0.821. A floor effect was observed in 4 of the items (Sustained Attention, Working Memory, Immediate Verbal Memory, and Alternating Verbal Fluency), and 1 item showed a ceiling effect (Clock Copying). The scale adequately discriminated patients with and without dementia (Kruskal-Wallis; P ≤ 0.000). The area under the curve was 0.899. With a cutoff score of 62 (from a possible score of 134), the scale achieved 94% sensitivity and 99% specificity. Conclusions: The PD-CRS has adequate measurement properties and is a valid tool for studying the presence of dementia in patients with Parkinson's disease.
