Autoimmune Dysautonomia

February 2011

When taking the history from a patient with autoimmune dysautonomia diagnostic clues may arise in the history, including a personal or family history of autoimmunity or cancer. One of the key reasons why diagnosing a paraneoplastic autoimmune dysautonomia is important is that when a cancer is detected in this setting it is usually a limited stage and is more easily treatable, thereby lessening morbidity from the cancer. Another reason for early detection of these disorders is that many of these patients improve considerably with immunotherapy or oncological therapies for a related cancer when the diagnosis is made early.
