Creators Name:Straussberg, R. and Basel-Vanagaite, L. and Kivity, S. and Dabby, R. and Cirak, S. and Nuernberg, P. and Voit, T. and Mahajnah, M. and Inbar, D. and Saifi, G.M. and Lupski, J.R. and Delague, V. and Megarbane, A. and Richter, A. and Leshinsky, E. and Berkovic, S.F.
Abstract:he authors describe three siblings born to consanguineous parents with early onset ataxia, dysarthria, myoclonic, generalized tonic clonic seizures, upward gaze palsy, extensor plantar reflexes, sensory neuropathy, and normal cognition. Direct screening excluded mutations in FRDA, TDP1, and SACS genes and at 8344, 3243, and 8993 positions of mitochondrial DNA. Linkage analysis excluded AOA-1, EPM1, EPM2A, EPM2B, CAMOS, and recessive ataxias linked to chromosome 9q34-9qter. This clinical constellation may represent a distinct form of early onset cerebellar ataxia.
