NINDS:43 Orthostatic hypotension is a sudden fall in blood pressure that occurs when a person assumes a standing position. It is due to a lesion of the baroreflex loop, which senses a change in blood pressure and adjusts heart rate and activates sympathetic nerve system fibers to cause the blood vessels to narrow and correct blood pressure. It may also be caused by hypovolemia (a decreased amount of blood in the body), resulting from the excessive use of diuretics, vasodilators, or other types of drugs, dehydration, or prolonged bed rest. The disorder may be associated with Addison's disease, diabetes, and certain neurological disorders including Multiple System Atrophy with Orthostatic Hypotension (formerly known as Shy-Drager syndrome), autonomic system neuropathies, and other dysautonomias. Symptoms, which generally occur after sudden standing, include dizziness, lightheadedness, blurred vision, and syncope (temporary loss of consciousness).

MalaCards: Pure Autonomic Failure, also known as idiopathic orthostatic hypotension, is related to multiple system atrophy and parkinson's disease. An important gene associated with Pure Autonomic Failure is SNCA (synuclein, alpha (non A4 component of amyloid precursor)), and among its related pathways are Alpha-synuclein signaling and Parkinsons Disease Pathway. The compounds atropine and 1 methyl 4 phenylpyridinium have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, spinal cord and heart, and related mouse phenotypes are cardiovascular system and behavior/neurological.

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Pure autonomic failure is characterized by generalized autonomic failure without involving the brain or spinal cord (central nervous system). the autonomic nervous system is the part of our bodies that controls involuntary actions, such as the widening or narrowing of our blood vessels. failure of this system can cause a variety of symptoms. the most common symptom of pure autonomic failure is orthostatic hypotension. other symptoms may include decreased sweating, heat intolerance, in ability to empty the bladder, erectile dysfunction, incontinence or constipation, and pupil changes. the cause of this condition is unknown. last updated: 2/26/2009
