Differential diagnoses include iatrogenic (including cardiovascular, urologic and psychotropic drugs) or curable (dehydration, venous insufficiency, anemia) causes of orthostatic hypotension, dopamine beta-hydroxylase deficiency (see this term), which is ruled out by the presence of plasma noradrenaline in patients affected by orthostatic hypotension that is considered idiopathic, primary or secondary peripheral polyneuropathy (including diabetes, amyloidosis, renal dysfunction, Guillain-Barré syndrome (see these terms), those due to deficiency or paraneoplasic syndrome) or neurodegenerative disease dysautonomias (multiple system atrophy, Parkinson's disease; see these terms), which are ruled out by normal neurological and paraclinical examinations in patients affected by PAF. The progression of PAF is slow, which distinguishes it from acute or sub-acute pandysautonomias.
