    Background: In Parkinson disease, orthostatic hypotension can result from L-dopa treatment or from sympathetic neurocirculatory failure. The latter is detected by abnormal blood pressure responses to the Valsalva maneuver and can be associated with loss of functional cardiac sympathetic nerve...

    Autonomic dysfunction in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) has been recognized since the original description by James Parkinson in 1817. Autonomic failure can be the clinical presentation of other diseases like pure autonomic failure (PAF) and multiple system atrophy (MSA). Both the...

    Several neurodegenerative disorders, including Parkinson disease (PD), are characterized by the presence of Lewy bodies - cytoplasmic inclusions containing α-synuclein protein aggregates - in the affected neurons.

    Background and purpose: It has been widely demonstrated that Parkinson's disease (PD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) share one clinicopathological entity; Lewy body disease (LBD) has thus become a general term for these diseases. LBD presents an impairment of adrenergic function and...

    Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension is a distinctive and treatable sign of cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction. It is caused by failure of noradrenergic neurotransmission that is associated with a range of primary or secondary autonomic disorders, including pure autonomic failure, Parkinson's...

    Reduced cardiac uptake of 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) is considered to represent dysfunction of the postganglionic neurons of the cardiac sympathetic nervous system. Evidence indicates that cardiac uptake of 123I-MIBG is decreased in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD),...
