The Shy-Drager Syndrome: What Did Shy and Drager Really Describe?

The Shy-Drager Syndrome: What Did Shy and Drager Really Describe? Abstract In 1960, Milton Shy and Glenn Drager1 described a neurological syndrome associated with orthostatic hypotension. Since that time, the term Shy-Drager syndrome has been widely used and even more widely abused. We, therefore, feel that a reexamination of both the term and of the original article is appropriate.

Abstract

Abstract In 1960, Milton Shy and Glenn Drager1 described a neurological syndrome associated with orthostatic hypotension. Since that time, the term Shy-Drager syndrome has been widely used and even more widely abused. We, therefore, feel that a reexamination of both the term and of the original article is appropriate.
