Spinocerebellar Ataxia 15; Sca15

Description

SCA15 is an autosomal dominant, adult-onset, very slowly progressive form of cerebellar ataxia. Most patients also have disabling action and postural tremor, and some have pyramidal tract affection, dorsal column involvement, and gaze palsy. Brain imaging shows cerebellar atrophy mainly affecting the vermis (summary by Synofzik et al., 2011).Heterozygous mutation in the ITPR1 gene can also cause SCA29 (OMIM ), which is distinguished by onset in infancy of delayed motor development followed by nonprogressive ataxia and mild cognitive impairment.Autosomal dominant 'pure' cerebellar ataxia, classified as ADCA type III by {3,4:Harding (1983, 1993)}, is a genetically heterogeneous disorder (see, e.g., {117210}).For a general discussion of autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxia, see SCA1 (OMIM ).
