Autonomic neuropathies are caused by damage to the peripheral autonomic nerves supplying the internal organs, blood vessels and the skin.

Symptoms of autonomic neuropathy may include:

  • Orthostatic hypotension

Autonomic neuropathies can occur in isolation or with the Guillain-Barre syndrome, paraneoplastic neuropathies, alcoholism, diabetes, among others.
