Shay dregg syndrome in the elderly

Shay dregg syndrome (SDS) is also known as progressive autonomic nerve failure, idiopathic orthostatic hypotension and neurogenic orthostatic hypotension. It is a rare disease with extensive degeneration of the central nervous system, including the autonomic nervous system. The patients are sporadic. In addition to orthostatic hypotension, the clinical manifestations are characterized by sweating disorder, impotence and other autonomic nerve dysfunction, and somatic nervous system symptoms such as pyramidal system, extrapyramidal system and cerebellar ataxia. Some people believe that OPCA is considered to be Shay dregg syndrome if it is accompanied by autonomic symptoms, such as orthostatic hypotension, dizziness or syncope, impotence, urinary incontinence, etc., which belongs to a type of multisystem atrophy (MSA).
