abstract

  • The low sensitivity for the clinical diagnosis of MSA, particularly among neurologists who followed up these patients in the tertiary centers, suggests that this disorder is underdiagnosed. The misdiagnosis of MSA is usually due to its confusion with Parkinson disease or progressive supranuclear palsy, thus compromising the research on all 3 disorders.
