HLA in Autonomic Failure

Arch Neurol. 1989;46(7):758-759. doi:10.1001/archneur.1989.00520430052016

• We did not find a significant association between HLA antigens and pure autonomic failure or multiple system atrophy with autonomic failure. HLA-A32, specifically, did not occur with increased frequency in either group of patients. Our results do not support an HLA contribution in these disorders of the autonomic nervous system as reported by other investigators.
