AbstractAbstract PDF

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 8 patients typically have a slowly progressive, adult-onset ataxia. SCA8 is characterized by relatively pure cerebellar ataxia, which is caused by the expansion of combined CTA/CTG repeats on chromosome 13q21. We report a 58 years old woman with slowly progressive dysarthria, and gait ataxia. We performed genetic studies for SCA 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 17 and detected CTA/CTG repeat expansion in the SCA8 gene.
