Abstract: 

Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is clinically characterized by vertical gaze palsy, postural instability with falls and poor response to dopaminergic drugs. We evaluated the efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) with open-label 5 Hz 5000 pulses for ten days over the supplementary motor area in seven PSP cases. Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Rating Scale (PSPRS) is improved by 7 points compared to the baseline (pre=48, post=41, p<0.05). rTMS might be a therapeutic tool to treat neurological sign of PSP.
