Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is an adult onset, progressive, idiopathic neurodegenerative disease that involves, to varying degree, the basal ganglia, olivopontocerebellar complex and autonomic system.1-3 It has three clinical subtypes: MSA-C when cerebellar signs are predominant, MSA-P when parkinsonian features are predominant and MSA-A when the patient presents with autonomic signs and symptoms.3 The presence of hot cross bun sign on T2WI is a powerful tool for diagnosis of MSA-C in appropriate clinical setting.
