Spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive, 17
Spinocerebellar ataxia defines 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. SCAR17 features include non-progressive congenital cerebellar ataxia, mildly delayed walking with an unsteady gait and frequent falls, dysarthria, dysmetria, hypotonia in the extremities, truncal ataxia, increased reflexes in the lower extremities, and intellectual disability.
