Abstract

Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a rare, progressive, fatal, neurodegenerative disorder with incidence and prevalence of 0.6 to 0.7 cases per 100,000 and 3.4 to 4.9 cases per 100,000 population, respectively [1]. This is a case of a 36-year-old woman presenting with predominant features of gait ataxia. On imaging, there was marked cerebro-cerebellar atrophy more prominent in the cerebellum.
