Spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive, 18
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. SCAR18 features include progressive cerebellar atrophy, delayed psychomotor development, severely impaired gait, ocular movement abnormalities, and intellectual disability.
