Spinocerebellar ataxia 13
Spinocerebellar ataxia is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCA13 is an autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia (ADCA) characterized by slow progression and variable age at onset, ranging from childhood to late adulthood. Mental retardation can be present in some patients.
