Human genes for autonomic neuropathy

Autonomic neuropathy [DOID:11504]

Dysautonomia (autonomic dysfunction) is a broad term that describes any disease or malfunction of the autonomic nervous system. This includes postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), inappropriate sinus tachycardia (IST), vasovagal syncope, pure autonomic failure, neurocardiogenic syncope (NCS), neurally mediated hypotension (NMH), orthostatic hypertension, autonomic instability and a number of lesser-known disorders such as cerebral salt-wasting syndrome. Dysautonomia is associated with multiple system atrophy (Shy-Drager syndrome), Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), and Marfan syndrome for reasons that are not fully understood.
