Diagnosed illness Spinocerebellar Ataxia 3
OMIM #109150
Clinical information Spinocerebellar ataxia 3 is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative genetic disorder. It belongs to a group of disorders called spinocerebellar ataxias. There are many clinical signs observed within the disease clinical spectrum such as ataxia, abnormal gait, dizziness, dysarthria, dysphagia, nystagmus, cerebellar atrophy, spasticity, neuropathy, epilepsy. Symptoms may appear at different age, usually during the 3rd or 4th decade. Molecularly, the disease is caused by expansion of CAG repeat in the ATXN3 gene, coding ataxin 3.
