Neuropathies, Autonomic

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Autonomic neuropathies are neuropathies with selective or disproportionate involvement of autonomic fibers. Causes include diabetes, amyloid, autoimmunity, and inherited etiologies. Diagnosis is made by its unique symptomatology and pattern of involvement, including temporal pattern. Advances in diagnosis include improved autonomic tests. These include quantitative autonomic function testing of cardiovagal, adrenergic, and sudomotor functions, radioligand adrenergic labeling studies, and genetic and autoantibody testing. Treatment advances include better management of orthostatic intolerance and autoimmune autonomic ganglionopathy.
