EARLY-ONSET SPASTIC ATAXIA-MYOCLONIC EPILEPSY-NEUROPATHY SYNDROME


Alternate names

EARLY-ONSET SPASTIC ATAXIA-MYOCLONIC EPILEPSY-NEUROPATHY SYNDROME Is also known as autosomal recessive spastic ataxia type 5, afg3l2-related spastic ataxia-myoclonic epilepsy-neuropathy syndrome, spax5

Description

Early-onset spastic ataxia-myoclonic epilepsy-neuropathy syndrome is a rare hereditary spastic ataxia disorder characterized by childhood onset of slowly progressive lower limb spastic paraparesis and cerebellar ataxia (with dysarthria, swallowing difficulties, motor degeneration), associated with sensorimotor neuropathy (including muscle weakness and distal amyotrophy in lower extremities) and progressive myoclonic epilepsy. Ocular signs (ptosis, oculomotor apraxia), dysmetria, dysdiadochokinesia, dystonic movements and myoclonus may also be associated.

Most common symptoms of EARLY-ONSET SPASTIC ATAXIA-MYOCLONIC EPILEPSY-NEUROPATHY SYNDROME

  • Seizures
  • Ataxia
  • Muscle weakness
  • Spasticity
  • Ptosis

SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA TYPE 28


Alternate names

SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA TYPE 28 Is also known as sca28

Description

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 28 (SCA28) is a very rare subtype of type I autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia (ADCA type I; see this term). It is characterized by juvenile onset, slowly progressive cerebellar ataxia due to Purkinje cell degeneration.

Most common symptoms of SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA TYPE 28

  • Ataxia
  • Nystagmus
  • Spasticity
  • Ptosis
  • Cognitive impairment
