The inherited ataxias

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hereditary ataxias although rare attract neurologic attention. Classification has been notoriously difficult. There are three large groups of patients encountered by the neurologist: dominant, recessive and sporadic ataxias. The sporadic ataxias will not be discussed in detail here. With smaller family sizes, it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish recessive and sporadic ataxias.
