5) In a patient with MSA where a combination of olivopontocerebellar
atrophy and striato-nigral degeneration was present, the typical impairments of eye movement characteristic of PD were evident, viz.
It is seen with increasing prevalence in patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD), multiple system atrophy (MSA), diffuse Lewy-Body disease with dementia (DLBD), corticobasal degeneration, olivopontocerebellar
atrophy, and progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP).
MSA was originally divided into Shy-Drager syndrome, striatonigral degeneration, and olivopontocerebellar
atrophy, but this distinction is no longer made.

The other two are striatonigral degeneration and olivopontocerebellar
Their laboratory studies, using mice, suggest that genes involved in iron metabolism, or lack thereof, may be the cause of Parkinson's and other diseases in which excessive brain iron has been noted, such as Friedrich's Ataxia, Hallervorden-Spatz disease, and multiple system atrophy (formerly known as olivopontocerebellar
Primary neurologic or neuromuscular pathology occasionally results in OSA; such pathologies include Chiari malformation, syringomyelobulbia, cerebral palsy, myotonic dystrophy, Shy-Drager syndrome, acquired nonprogressive dysautonomia, olivopontocerebellar
degeneration, spinal cord injury, and bulbar stroke.

In 1969, Oppenheimer used the term multiple system atrophy to describe conditions comprising striatonigral degeneration (SND), olivopontocerebellar
atrophy, (OPCA), and Shy-Drager syndrome (SDS; Quinn, 1989).
