Spastic paraplegias (SPGs) are a genetically heterogeneous group of neurologic disorders characterized by progressive weakness and spasticity of the legs. Complicated SPGs are accompanied by additional neurologic symptoms such as cerebellar ataxia, sensory loss, mental retardation, nystagmus, and optic atrophy (summary by Steinmuller et al., 1997).A locus for spastic paraplegia-16 has been mapped to Xq11.2-q23 (Steinmuller et al., 1997).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of X-linked spastic paraplegia, see {303350}.
