Abstract: Functional Gait Disorder (FGD) is characterised as altered gait that is unexplained by neuropathology. Motor and non-motor symptoms can impact FGD, but little is known about the characteristics of these symptoms, including the frequency, severity and impact they have on patients’ gait. Aim: to provide an overview of the current literature of functional gait disorders including diagnosis, clinical presentation, phenotypes and treatment.
