ABSTRACTVarious neurologic diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson disease can cause pulmonary complications. Pulmonary disorders often manifest late in a neuromuscular disease, but occasionally a respiratory problem may be the first sign. Often the first signs are sleep disturbances and nocturnal desaturation. Although the diseases are diverse, common principles apply in their management.
