Endosteal sclerosis-cerebellar hypoplasia syndrome is characterized by congenital cerebellar hypoplasia, endosteal sclerosis, hypotonia, ataxia, mild to moderate developmental delay, short stature, hip dislocation, and tooth eruption disturbances. It has been described in four patients. Less common manifestations are microcephaly, strabismus, nystagmus, optic atrophy, and dysarthria. It is appears to be transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait.

Autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia-epilepsy-intellectual disability syndrome due to RUBCN deficiency is an extremely rare, autosomal recessive, hereditary cerebellar ataxia disorder characterized by early onset of progressive, mild to moderate gait and limb ataxia, moderate to severe dysarthria, and nystagmus or saccadic pursuit, frequently associated with epilepsy, moderate intellectual disability, delayed speech acquisition, and hyporeflexia in the upper extremities. Hyperreflexia in the lower extremities may also be associated.

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 ).
