Clinical ethical issues may arise at any stage of multiple system atrophy. Even if there is “bad news,” such as sudden death or dementia in the future, the patient has the right to know, but the notification should be made with prudence and consideration for the patient. We also need to recognize that there is insufficient evidence to support clinical ethical judgment. In addition, it is important to promote clinical research and to actively carry out clinical ethical discussions on this disease.
