Name Striatonigral Degeneration
Synonyms Atrophies, Striatonigral | Atrophy, Striatonigral | Degeneration, Striatonigral | Striatonigral Atrophies | Striatonigral Atrophy | Striatonigral Degenerations
Definition A sporadic neurodegenerative disease with onset in middle-age characterized clinically by Parkinsonian features (e.g., MUSCLE RIGIDITY; HYPOKINESIA; stooped posture) and HYPOTENSION. This condition is considered a clinical variant of MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY. Pathologic features include a prominent loss of neurons in the zona compacta of the SUBSTANTIA NIGRA and PUTAMEN.
