Case study of conjugal multiple system atrophy in a married couple

Takeaway

  • Conjugal multiple system atrophy (MSA) was reported in a married couple, which likely occurred by chance but shared exposure to pesticides may have contributed to onset.

Why this matters

    Conjugal MSA is extremely rare, but probability calculation suggests that conjugal MSA by chance is plausible and there is currently no evidence for human-to-human transmissibility.
