This case demonstrates severe autonomic failure with orthostatic hypotension affecting cardiovagal and sympathetic adrenergic fibers and associated with small fiber neuropathy. Small fiber neuropathy is severe, mixed, and affecting sensory and autonomic fibers, non–length-dependent. Orthostatic cerebral blood flow velocity was reduced throughout the tilt, indicative of autoregulation failure.
