The central pathological process in MSA involves neuronal cell loss and gliosis throughout the central nervous system (CNS), especially in the putamen, caudate, substantia nigra, locus coerulus, pontine nucleus, inferior olivary nucleus purkinje cells and the intermediolateral cell columns of the thoracic spinal cord (93).
