Learning objectives for this Activity:

Understand that patients with neurodegenerative disorders, particularly synucleinopathies, can suffer from autonomic dysfunction, sometimes as a presenting feature.

Define basic epidemiology, and overall clinical features of orthostatic hypotension.

Explain multiple system atrophy (the neurodegenerative disorder with the most prominent autonomic dysfunction), and its differences with Parkinson disease.

Apply the rationale for the management of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension.
