Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for contacting us with your question. Most cases of Parkinson's disease occur in people with no family history of the disease. About 15% of cases with a familial history are caused by a mutation of specific genes. Parkinson's disease is more common in men than women.
Hope that this answers your question
