The connection to nOH doesn’t end with Parkinson’s disease, multiple system atrophy (MSA), and pure autonomic failure (PAF). It’s related to a range of autonomic disorders, including dopamine beta-hydroxylase deficiency (DBH).

A very rare congenital disease that affects the autonomic nervous system, resulting in an inability to make norepinephrine is a very rare disease that affects the autonomic nervous system. Nearly all patients with DBH will have severe orthostatic hypotension (OH) by their early adult years.
