OMIM #125370
Clinical information DENTATORUBRAL-PALLIDOLUYSIAN ATROPHY (DRPLA) is a progressive neurologic genetic disorder, with symptoms similar to spinocerebellar ataxias. The disorder is extremely rare within Caucasians, but in Japanese population it occurs with a frequency of 0.2-0.7:10000 and is presumably the most common type of ataxia. DRPLA is caused by dynamic mutations (expansion of trinucleotide CAG repeats) in the gene DRPLA ,coding atrofin protein 1. Characteristics symptoms involve ataxia, choreoathetosis, dementia, and others.
