Parkinsonism among retired Filipino boxers
چکیده انگلیسی


- Repetitive head trauma from boxing has been associated with the development of parkinsonism.
- Among retired Filipino boxers, the frequency of parkinsonism was 80.95%.
- The factors that significantly increased the risk for parkinsonism among retired Filipino boxers were a higher number of fights lost and knockouts endured.
- A higher number of fights lost and knockouts endured significantly increased the risk for parkinsonism among retired Filipino boxers.

Background and purposeRepetitive head trauma from boxing has been associated with the development of parkinsonism. This study aimed to determine the frequency of and the risk factors for parkinsonism among retired Filipino boxers.MethodsA total of 21 retired Filipino professional boxers were screened for parkinsonism using the motor part of the Movement Disorder Society − Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS − UPDRS).ResultsSeventeen retired boxers were found to have parkinsonism (80.95%). The factors that significantly increased the risk for parkinsonism among retired Filipino boxers were the number of fights lost (16.47 vs. 7.25, p = 0.0393) and the number of knockouts endured (2.17 vs 1.00, p = 0.0480). Boxers in heavier weight divisions had higher odds of parkinsonism compared to those in lighter weight divisions. However, this was not significant.ConclusionThe frequency of parkinsonism among retired Filipino boxers was 80.95%. The factors that significantly increased the risk for the development of parkinsonism were higher number of fights lost and number of knockouts endured.
