Multiple System Atrophy

 

Multiple System Atrophy: MSA-C versus MSA-P — MSA-C is the diagnosis given when the most prominent symptoms are “cerebellar”. The cerebellum is the part of the brain that controls balance and coordination. Patients may be told they have symptoms of cerebellar ataxia or olivopontocerebellar degeneration. The Olives, Pons and Cerebellum are all parts of the brain that are affected in MSA-C. The pons controls sleep, breathing, chewing and swallowing. MSA-P is the diagnosis given when the most prominent symptoms are “parkinsonian”. The part of the brain called the Striatum is most affected. This causes tremor, stiffness, suddenly freezing when walking or initiating movements. Someone may be diagnosed MSA-C but eventually develop more parkinsons symptoms or they may be diagnosed MSA-P and eventually develop more cerebellar symptoms. It all depends on how the disease spreads through the brain. No two people are exactly the same.
