Understanding MSA

MSA, or multiple system atrophy, is a rare neurological disease affecting men and women. It’s random, meaning it could affect any one of us.

This section describes MSA and its symptoms, and provides a glossary of common terms you may come across in the treatment and management of MSA.

We also take a look at research underway, including some of the projects funded by the Trust.

Our section on Living with MSA provides information on practical issues and day-to-day life with multiple system atrophy.
