Answer

Answer

The presence of dementia in a patient in whom TD is suspected merits consideration of Huntington disease, Wilson disease, or a central nervous system (CNS) neoplasm. The presence of hemiparesis, asymmetric reflexes, and other focal deficits indicates the need for further assessment to exclude structural brain lesions.
