Sustained Sympathicotonia as a Factor in Disease

  • Irvin M. Korr


There is a large though scattered body of clinical and experimental literature that gives the distinct impression of a significant, often critical sympathetic component as a common feature in a large variety of syndromes. Chronic hyperactivity of the innervating sympathetic pathways seems to be a prevailing theme in many clinical conditions, involving many organs and tissues. Whatever the etiological or therapeutic implications, it appears that this widely shared feature of local, regional or segmental sympathetic hyperactivity is overlooked or dismissed because of the barriers erected by specialization. Thus, the ophthalmologist is not ordinarily exposed to the gastroenterological literature, the gastroenterologist to the cardiological, the cardiologist to the gynecological, etc. Each discoverer of a sympathetic component seems, therefore, to regard it as peculiar to this or that disease within his or her area of specialization, rather than as part of a general theme.
