Patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) are considered to present a magnetic, slow, wide-based gait, also called frontal gait. However, this gait profile is not specific for iNPH and encountered in patients with other neurological conditions mimicking iNPH (i.e. iNPH mimics), such as vascular dementia. We aimed to characterize the gait profiles in iNPH and their mimics and to compare the prevalence of clinical gait abnormalities between both groups.
