Masked facies (also known as hypomimia) is the loss of facial expressions most commonly associated with Parkinson’s disease. It is so named because the condition gives the affected person a fixed, mask-like expression.
In Parkinson’s disease, masking can develop as the progressive loss of motor control extends to the facial muscles as it does to other parts of the body. Masked facies can complicate an already difficult situation, alienating acquaintances who may be put off or disturbed by the apparent lack of emotional response.

Hi Sue, Katy Madden here. Just wanted to reach out and share a spiritual hug, since we have not been able to carry on with our temple service so near and dear to our hearts. I hope you are maintaining your sweet spirit and great sense of humor, even if it hides behind a Parkinsons mask. You are my champion spirit sister and super woman. Love you to pieces!!! Bountiful blessings, Katy
