Abstract

We report a case of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (FALS) with clinical signs of cerebellar and posterior column involvement. The patient's work-up showed a known mutation (E100K) in the gene for Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1). Our case illustrates that extramotor symptoms, such as prominent cerebellar signs, can be seen in patients with FALS.
