Shy-Drager Syndrome Definition

Definition

Shy-Drager syndrome is a degenerative disorder of the nervous system. Multiple areas of the nervous system can be affected, such as the parts that control motor and involuntary functions. The motor system controls movement and balance. The involuntary, or autonomic, nervous system controls body functions (for example, blood pressure, bowel and bladder function). Shy-Drager syndrome may cause postural hypotension. Postural hypotension is a drop in blood pressure after changing position that can result in dizziness or fainting.
