The dysautonomia burden in people with neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders

Takeaway

  • A significant proportion of people with neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (pwNMOSD) experience a slightly different and severe form of dysautonomia compared to people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS).

Why this matters

  • Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders are distinct from multiple sclerosis, but few cases investigate and report the autonomic dysfunction in pwNMOSD despite their burden.
