Spinocerebellar ataxias Ataxias espinocerebelares. Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Full Text Available Spinocerebellar ataxias SCAs constitute a heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by progressive cerebellar ataxia agguda association with some or all of the following conditions: To carry out a ataxi and genetic review of the main types of SCA.

Ccerebelar types of SCAs are currently known, and 16 genes associated with the disease have been identified. SCAs are genotypically and phenotypically very heterogeneous. A clinical algorithm atxaia be used to distinguish between the different types of SCAs. Detailed clinical neurological examination of SCA patients can be of great help when assessing them, and the information thus gained can be used in an algorithm to screen patients before molecular tests to investigate the correct etiology of the disease are requested.

Na atualidade existem cerca de 30 tipos de AECs, com a descoberta de 16 genes. Speech in spinocerebellar ataxia. Spinocerebellar ataxias SCAs are a heterogeneous group of autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxias clinically characterized by ataixa ataxiadysarthria and a range of other concomitant neurological symptoms.

Only a few studies include detailed characterization of speech symptoms in SCA. Speech symptoms in SCA resemble ataxic dysarthria but symptoms related to phonation may be more prominent.

One study to date has shown an association between differences in speech and voice symptoms related to genotype. More studies of speech and voice phenotypes are motivated, to possibly aid in clinical diagnosis. In addition, instrumental speech analysis has been demonstrated to be a reliable measure that may be used to monitor disease progression or therapy outcomes in possible future pharmacological treatments. Intervention atuda speech and language pathologists should go beyond assessment.

Clinical guidelines for management of speech, communication and swallowing need to be developed for individuals with progressive cerebellar ataxia. Maculopathy and spinocerebellar ataxia type 1. Autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia is a rare heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by cerebellar symptoms, often associated with other multisystemic signs.

Mild optic neuropathy has been associated with spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 SCA1but macular dysfunction has been reported Ataxias and Cerebellar or Spinocerebellar Degeneration. The autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxias are a diverse and clinically heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by degeneration and dysfunction of the cerebellum and its associated pathways. Clinical and diagnostic evaluation can be challenging because of phenotypic overlap among causes, and a stratified and systematic approach is essential.

Recent advances include the identification of additional genes causing dominant genetic ataxiaa better understanding of cellular pathogenesis in several disorders, the generation of new disease models that may stimulate development of new therapies, and the use of new DNA sequencing technologies, including whole-exome sequencing, to improve diagnosis. agda

Spinocerebellar ataxia with paranoid schizophrenia. Full Text Available Spino-cerebellar ataxia type 10 SCA10 is an autosomal dominant disorder that is characterized by cerebellar ataxiaseizures and nystagmus with a fragmented pursuit. We report a Hispanic family involving a father and his four children with SCA10 genetic mutation.

Two of his children, a year-old female and a year-old male, presented with gradually progressive spino-cerebellar ataxia and paranoid schizophrenia. Neurological examination revealed ocular dysmetria, dysdiadokinesia, impaired finger-to-nose exam, gait ataxia and hyperreflexia in both the cases.


Additionally, they had a history of psychosis with destructive behavior, depression and paranoid delusions with auditory hallucinations. We now endeavor to investigate the association between schizophrenia and SCA Research progress of spinocerebellar ataxia type 1. Full Text Available Spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 SCA1 is a kind of autosomal dominant genetic neurodegenerative disorder.

To date, the pathogenesis of SCA1 remains unclear.

Studies in qtaxia SCA1 experimental models, including transgenic mice, transgenic drosophila and induced pluripotent stem cells, have shown that phosphorylation of S in mutant ataxin-1, molecular chaperones, ubiquitin-proteasome system and down-regulation of several components of RAS-MAPK-MSK1 pathway may involve in the pathogenesis of SCA1.

In this review, the clinical and pathological features of SCA1, and the latest advances of pathogenesis, model systems and therapeutic exploration will be briefly summarized.

Phenotype variability and early onset ataxia symptoms in spinocerebellar ataxia type 7: Full Ataxja Available The spinocerebellar ataxias SCA are a group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by heterogeneous clinical presentation. Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 SCA7 is caused by an abnormal CAG repeat expansion and includes cerebellar signs associated with visual loss and ophthalmoplegia.

Marked anticipation and dynamic mutation is observed in SCA7. Moreover, phenotype variability and very early onset of symptoms may occur. From the 26 patients with SCA7, 4 manifested their symptoms before year-old. Also, occasionally the parents may have the onset of symptoms after their children. In conclusion, our study highlights the genetic anticipation phenomenon that occurs in SCA7 families.

Patients with very early onset ataxia in the context of a remarkable family history, must be considered and tested for SCA7. Spinocerebellar ataxia type 6: MRI of three Japanese patients. All showed slowly progressive cerebellar ataxia and mild pyramidal signs.

Neuroradiologically, they had moderate cerebellar atrophy, most prominently in the superior vermis, whereas the brain stem appeared to be spared.

No abnormal signal intensity was identified. Genetic testing atsxia clinically suspected spinocerebellar ataxias The patients were assessed according to the International Cooperative Ataxia Rating The Indian Journal of Medical Research Molecular genetics of a Chinese family with spinocerebellar ataxia.

Referring to the clinical manifestations of the proband and second-generation sequencing results, the CAG trinucleotide repeats of the pathogenic gene ATXN2 were cerebekar by polymerase chain reaction PCR. The repeated times of the trinucleotide in normally and abnormally amplified alleles were defined by agarose gel electrophoresis and PCR products sequencing. Six out of 46 in the fourth-generation were SCA2 patients, 7 were the carriers afaxia pathogenic allele. The repeated times of CAG trinucleotide were within the normal range in one of the two alleles of ATXN2, but they were in abnormal range in the another one.

The repeated times of CAG trinucleotide were in abnormal alleles of patients. Full Text Available Background: The contributions of vascular risk factors to spinocerebellar ataxia SCA are not known. We employed regression models to study the effects of vascular risk factors on ataxia onset and progression after adjusting for age, sex, and pathological CAG repeats. Our secondary analyses took hyperlipidemia into account.

These findings were not altered after accounting for hyperlipidemia. Vascular risks are not common in SCAs and are not associated with earlier onset or faster ataxia progression. Prevalence of spinocerebellar ataxia 36 in a US population.

To assess the cerebepar and clinical features of individuals affected by spinocerebellar ataxia 36 SCA36 at a large tertiary cerebelr center in the United States. A total of patients with undiagnosed sporadic or familial cerebellar ataxia comprehensively evaluated at a tertiary referral ataxia center were molecularly evaluated for SCA These 4 SCApositive families aguad 2 distinct ethnic groups: Individuals affected by SCA36 exhibited typical clinical features with gait ataxia and age at onset ranging between 35 and 50 years.


Cwrebelar also suffered from ataxic or spastic limbs, altered reflexes, abnormal ocular movement, and cognitive impairment. Ocular disorders are useful in the characterisation of the different types of spinocerebellar ataxias SCA ; pigmentary retinitis is an alteration that is specifically associated to SCA type 7 and is characterised by night blindness, sensitivity to glare and progressive narrowing of the visual field.

A year-old woman with clinical symptoms of progressive ataxia and visual impairment secondary to pigmentary retinitis. The patient had a personal history with an autosomal dominant pattern of a similar disorder in her father and paternal grandmother. In the genetic study she presented a triplet expansion in the SCA type 2 qtaxia.

A genetic study for SCA type 2 must therefore be conducted in patients with a degenerative ataxic clinical picture and who present evidence of pigmentary retinitis.

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7: Report of an Indian family. Full Text Available Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 SCA7 is a form of autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia which is associated with pigmentary retinal degeneration. It is known for its world-wide rarity except in the Scandinavian countries. It is very rarely reported from India and the neighbouring Asian countries.

The present report describes the neurogenetic findings of a family of SCA7, from the northern part of Karnataka in South India. It documents the wide intrafamilial phenotypic variability, which could be correlated with the CAG repeat counts and phenomenon of anticipation. Genotype phenotype correlation highlighted certain disparities in comparison with the previous studies.

The report highlights the need for multiethnic population studies and the role of genetic counseling and prenatal testing in SCA7 patients.

Mitochondrial recessive ataxia syndrome mimicking dominant spinocerebellar ataxia. We studied the genetic background of a family with SCA, showing dominant inheritance and anticipation. Muscle histology, POLG1 gene sequence, neuropathology and mitochondrial DNA analyses in a mother and a son showed typical findings for a mitochondrial disorder, and both were shown to be homozygous cedebelar a recessive POLG1 mutation, underlying mitochondrial recessive ataxia syndrome, MIRAS.

The healthy father was a heterozygous carrier for the same mutation. aghda

Recessively inherited MIRAS mutations should be tested in dominantly inherited SCAs cases of unknown cause, as the high carrier frequency of MIRAS may result in two independent introductions of the mutant allele in the family and thereby mimic dominant inheritance. Progression of Dysphagia in Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6. Spinocerebellar ataxia type 6 SCA6an autosomal dominant triplet repeat disease, predominantly affects the cerebellum with a late onset and generally good prognosis. Dysphagia is commonly associated with the outcomes of neurodegenerative diseases such as SCA6.

Although the characteristics of dysphagia have been rarely reported in SCA6, our previous study indicated that dysphagia is generally milder in SCA6 than in SCA3, another inherited ataxia with multisystem involvement. However, abnormalities in the pharyngeal phase in SCA6 were indistinguishable from those in SCA3, with no explainable reason. To determine the reason, we repeatedly performed videofluoroscopic examinations VF in 14 patients with SCA6.

A common clinical feature of the four patients was a significantly older age at the onset of ataxia This finding surprisingly indicated that patients who had shorter repeats and thereby later onset and potentially better prognoses were at risk for dysphagia-associated problems.
