La ataxia espinocerebelosa tipo 2 (SCA2) es una enfermedad genética con Spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 (SCA2) is an autosomal dominant. Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 (SCA7), currently the only known form of autosomal characterized by progressive ataxia, motor system abnormalities, dysarthria. Infantile-onset spinocerebellar ataxia (IOSCA) is a hereditary neurological disorder with early and severe involvement of both the peripheral and central nervous.

Diagnostic methods The diagnosis is based on clinical and pathological findings.

Prenatal testing may be available for families in which the disease-causing mutations have already been identified. X-linked mental retardation with cerebellar hypoplasia and distinctive facial appearance. Male sibs who inherit the pathogenic variant will be affected ; female sibs who inherit the pathogenic variant will be carriers and will usually not be affected.
