Abstract

Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a rare adult-onset neurodegenerative disease. Symptoms vary from autonomic dysfunction to Parkinsonism and cerebellar ataxia, in any combination. MSA affects many organ systems with many possible complications and makes perioperative management of a patient with this condition very challenging. Successful management of a patient with MSA posted for laparoscopic nephrectomy under general anaesthesia is reported.
