Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a sporadic neurodegenerative disorder manifested by parkinsonism and dysfunction of autonomic, cerebellar, urinary, and pyramidal systems. The most frequent presentation is with a combination of parkinsonism and autonomic dysfunction, but cerebellar ataxia with autonomic failure occurs frequently as well. Striatonigral degeneration (SND) and sporadic olivopontocerebellar atrophy (sOPCA) can progress to include autonomic failure and thus may be forms of MSA, but… CONTINUE READING
