Multiple System Atrophy


Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a rare, progressive neurological disorder characterized by the degeneration of nerve cells in specific areas of the brain. This leads to problems with movement, balance, and autonomic functions such as blood pressure and bladder control. MSA is often divided into two subtypes: MSA-P (parkinsonian) and MSA-C (cerebellar), based on the predominant symptoms.
