There is an increasing awareness of impulsive-compulsive phenomena in patients treated for Parkinson's disease (PD). We describe another, potentially related phenomenon putatively associated with the use of dopamine agonists in 3 patients with PD, characterized by excessive and inappropriate philanthropy.
