Intervention Details:
  • Other: Biopsies of peripheral autonomic nervous system
  • Other: Autonomic dysfunction questionnaires
    Other Name: a battery of questionaries to evaluate autonomic neurological patient complaints and dysfunctions.
  • Other: Electrophysiological tests
    Other Name: A battery of electrophysiological tests to assess neurological functions


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate association between clinical autonomic failure and neuropathological autonomic failure on biopsies. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

    the main objective is to look after associations between :

    • anatomopathological signs of autonomic nervous system disorders seen on biopsies AND
    • clinical signs of signs of autonomic nervous system disorders seen through functional tests or through symptoms indicated by the patient on questionaries.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate association between autonomic failure and severity factors in Parkinson's disease [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

    Autonomic failure will be assessed through questionaries on symptoms and through functional tests.

    Severity factors in parkinson disease will refer to various parameters like patient age.


  2. Evaluate consequences of autonomic failure on quality of life and sleep quality [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    quality of life and of sleep will be assessed through functional tests and through questionaries.
