Autonomic nervous system diseases

Familial dysautonomia
Familial dysautonomia is a rare genetic disorder of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) that primarily affects people of Eastern European Jewish heritage. It is characterized by diminished sensitivity to pain, lack of overflow tearing in the eyes, a decrease in the number of knob-like projections that cover the tongue (fungiform papillae), unusual fluctuations of body temperature, and unstable blood pressure.
 
Multiple system atrophy
Multiple system atrophy is a degenerative disorder characterized by progressive damage to the autonomic nervous system (the portion of the nervous system that controls involuntary functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, digestion and sexual function), muscle tremor and rigidity, slow movement, and other widespread neurologic losses. Symptoms of MSA vary in distribution, onset and severity from person to person.
 
Olivopontocerebellar atrophy
Olivopontocerebellar atrophy is a neurodegenerative illness that causes certain brain areas (which may include the olivary nucleus, the pons, and the cerebellum) to shrink. Olivopontocerebellar atrophy is a group of genetic diseases in which there is progressive degeneration of the olivopontocerebellar pathway in the brain connecting the inferior olive, pons, and cerebellum.
