Course and Outcome of Acute Cerebellar Ataxia Anne M. Connolly, MD," W. Edwin Dodson, MD," Arthur L. Prensky, MD," and Robert S. Rust, MD?$ We report a study of 73 consecutive children with acute cerebellar ataxia, representing all of the children evaluated at St. Louis Childrens Hospital during a 23-year-period to whom this diagnosis could appropriately be assigned. Twenty-six percent had chickenpox, 52% had other illnesses that were presumed to be viral, and in 3% the ataxia was related to immunization. Nineteen percent had no definite prodrome. Sixty children were followed for 4 months or longer after onset of their ataxia (mean, 7.4 f 6.0 years). Ninety-one percent (55160)of these, including all children with chickenpox, recovered completely from ataxia. Eighty-nine percent (39/44)of the children with non-varicellarelated ataxia recovered completely from the ataxia, a much better rate of recovery than what was found in prior large studies. One fifth of the children followed for more than 4 ...

Hereditary cerebellar degenerations are a heterogeneous group of diseases often having a detrimental impact on patients quality of life. Unfortunately, no sufficiently effective causal therapy is available for human patients at present. There are several therapies that have been shown to affect the pathogenetic process and thereby to delay the progress of the disease in mouse models of cerebellar ataxias. The second experimental therapeutic approach for hereditary cerebellar ataxias is neurotransplantation. Grafted cells might provide an effect via delivery of a scarce neurotransmitter, substitution of lost cells if functionally integrated and rescue or trophic support of degenerating cells. The results of cerebellar transplantation research over the past 30 years are reviewed here and potential benefits and limitations of neurotransplantation therapy are discussed.

We demonstrate genetic and biochemical data in a family with a novel frameshift mutation in the ADCK3 gene and with the phenotype of a complex ataxia-myoclonus syndrome, CoQ10 deficiency and abnormal MRC enzyme activities. One of the unusual features of this family is an onset in the second decade, which is later than most previously reported cases with ADCK3 mutations. Also, this family was affected with marked myoclonic-dystonic movements but relatively mild cerebellar ataxia, suggesting a wide phenotypic spectrum of ADCK3 mutations.. To date, autosomal recessive mutations in ADCK3 have only been identified in 22 patients from 13 families, and these mutations have been associated with clinically heterogeneous diseases.9 Patients usually present with a complex neurological phenotype, with cerebellar ataxia as the predominant manifestation.8-11 In this family, cerebellar symptoms were relatively mild compared to the disabling myoclonus and involuntary movements which affected both siblings. ...
The cerebellar ataxias are a group of incurable brain disorders that are caused primarily by the progressive dysfunction and degeneration of cerebellar Purkinje cells. The lack of reliable disease models for the heterogeneous ataxias has hindered the understanding of the underlying pathogenic mechanisms as well as the development of effective therapies for these devastating diseases. Recent advances in the field of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology offer new possibilities to better understand and potentially reverse disease pathology. Given the neurodevelopmental phenotypes observed in several types of ataxias, iPSC-based models have the potential to provide significant insights into disease progression, as well as opportunities for the development of early intervention therapies. To date, however, very few studies have successfully used iPSC-derived cells to model cerebellar ataxias. In this review, we focus on recent breakthroughs in generating human iPSC-derived Purkinje cells. We also

Author Summary Hereditary ataxias are a heterogeneous group of rare disorders characterized by progressive cerebellar neurodegeneration. Several causative mutations have been identified in various forms of human ataxias. In addition to humans, inherited ataxias have been described in several other species, including the domestic dog. In this study, we have studied the clinical and genetic properties of cerebellar ataxia in the Finnish Hound dog breed. The breed suffers from a progressive ataxia that has an early onset before the age of 3 months. Affected puppies have difficulties in coordinating their movements and balance, and have to be euthanized due to rapidly worsening symptoms. Our pedigree analysis suggested an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance, which was confirmed by identifying a homozygous mutation in the SEL1L gene through genome-wide association and linkage analyses. The SEL1L protein functions in a protein quality control pathway that targets misfolded proteins to degradation in the
The cerebellum plays crucial roles in controlling sensorimotor functions. The neural output from the cerebellar cortex is transmitted solely by Purkinje cells (PCs), whose impairment causes cerebellar ataxia. Parallel fiber (PF) to PC synaptic transmission is mediated by postsynaptic ionotropic glutamate receptors and the metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 1 (mGluR1). Previous studies including knockout of the mGluR1 or blockade of mGluR1 function by the specific antibody showed that mGluR signaling is crucial for cerebellar function and that defect of mGluR signaling results in severe ataxia. Spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 (SCA1) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder caused by the expansion of a polyglutamine tract in the ataxin-1 protein. The onset is approximately 4th decade of the life and the patients show progressive cerebellar ataxia. To date, no fundamental treatments for SCA1 have been elucidated. We found that SCA1 model mice show selective impairment of mGluR signaling in ...
Serological testing for anti-neural autoantibodies is important in patients presenting with idiopathic cerebellar ataxia, since these autoantibodies may indicate cancer, determine treatment and predict prognosis. While some of them target nuclear antigens present in all or most CNS neurons (e.g. anti-Hu, anti-Ri), others more specifically target antigens present in the cytoplasm or plasma membrane of Purkinje cells (PC). In this series of articles, we provide a detailed review of the clinical and paraclinical features, oncological, therapeutic and prognostic implications, pathogenetic relevance, and differential laboratory diagnosis of the 12 most common PC autoantibodies (often referred to as Medusa head antibodies due to their characteristic somatodendritic binding pattern when tested by immunohistochemistry). To assist immunologists and neurologists in diagnosing these disorders, typical high-resolution immunohistochemical images of all 12 reactivities are presented, diagnostic pitfalls discussed

The autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxias (ADCA) are a heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by progressive degeneration of the cerebellum, brain stem and spinal cord. Clinically, ADCA has been divided into three groups: ADCA types I-III. ADCAI is genetically heterogeneous, with five genetic loci, designated spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6, being assigned to five different chromosomes. ADCAII, which always presents with retinal degeneration (SCA7), and ADCAIII often referred to as the `pure cerebellar syndrome (SCA5), are most likely homogeneous disorders. Several SCA genes have been cloned and shown to contain CAG repeats in their coding regions. ADCA is caused by the expansion of the CAG repeats, producing an elongated polyglutamine tract in the corresponding protein. The expanded repeats are variable in size and unstable, usually increasing in size when transmitted to successive generations. The function of the ataxins is not known. This locus has ...
We present a 7-year-old boy with acute cerebellitis who required an emergency ventriculoperitoneal shunt for hydrocephalus caused by cerebellar swelling. This represents a very unusual, potentially life-threatening complication of a usually self-limiting condition. Early diagnosis of this complication is essential in view of the propensity to sudden and fatal deterioration. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is useful in differentiating this unusual course of acute cerebellar ataxia from that of a posterior fossa tumor. In developing countries, however, computed tomography (CT) is often the only existing diagnostic modality and access to MRI, when available, is limited. Our case demonstrates that the shape of the fourth ventricle on CT can be helpful in differentiating between a tumor and edema of the cerebellum and thus can assist in management ...

Spongy Degeneration with Cerebellar Ataxia, (SDCA2) is an inherited disease affecting the Belgian Shepherd breed. It is a severe neurodegenerative disease with monogenic autosomal recessive inheritance. The disease is characterised by rapidly progressing ataxia starting around the age of 5-8 weeks. Puppies are usually euthanised by the age of 8-12 weeks. The disease can also be caused by another mutation SDCA2 . We also offer a combined SDCA1 + SDCA2 test in this breed. .

Cerebellar Ataxia is a disabling and frustrating condition where people have the ability to move yet reduced control of the necessary balance and coordination.
Ataxia is defined as the inability to generate a normal voluntary movement trajectory that cannot be attributed to weakness or involuntary muscle activity.1 The word derives from Greek and means without order, referring to disorganized, poorly coordinated, or clumsy movments.2 The disorder may be caused by dysfunction of the cerebellum or its immediate projections, and is traditionally referred to as cerebellar ataxia. In such cases, ataxia may involve appendicular (e.g., limb) or axial (e.g., truncal) control, often affecting balance and gait. Cerebellar ataxia is estimated to affect 26 in 100,000 children worldwide.3 Injuries to the proprioceptive system may also present with clumsy, disorganized movements, known as sensory ataxia. Finally, vestibular injury may affect posture and balance, which much be distinguished from ataxia. This chapter focuses on symptoms, signs, and etiologies of cerebellar ataxia, with an emphasis on infectious and para/postinfectious causes. ...
The cerebellum and its major connection are subject to a number of diseases. One of the most relevant consequences of cerebellar dysfunction is ataxia, a neurological dysfunction of motor coordination, which may affect fundamental activities such as gaze, speech, gait, and balance1. The hereditary ataxias comprise a very large spectrum of genetically determined neurodegenerative disorders with progressive ataxia as the prominent symptom2. The International Cooperative Ataxia Rating Scale (ICARS) is a scale developed to assess cerebellar ataxia3. ICARS was found to be a reliable scale satisfying accepted criteria for interrater reliability, test_retest reliability, and internal consistency. Although validity testing was limited, It was found evidence of validity of ICARS when ataxia disease stages and Barthel index were used as external criteria4,5.. In order to measure the severity of cerebellar ataxia in an easier and more practical way, Schmitz-Hubsch et al proposed a new scale: the Scale for ...

Turkmen et al. (2009) reported a consanguineous Iraqi family in which four of eight sibs had congenital ataxia, mild mental retardation, and dysarthria. All walked with a quadrupedal gait, with straight legs and placing their weight on the palms of their hands. The parents claimed that the affected persons never learned to crawl on their knees as most infants do, but ambulated from infancy on with their legs held straight with a bear-like gait. Attempts to teach the children to walk on two legs with crutches or other supports failed. All complained of lack of balance and frequent falls when trying to walk bipedally. There were no other neurologic symptoms. Brain imaging was not performed, but Turkmen et al. (2009) speculated that the ataxia resulted from cerebellar dysfunction based on an animal model. At molecular level, Turkmen et al. (2009) identified a homozygous mutation in the CA8 gene (c.298T,C; S100P) on chromosome 8q12, by carrying out genome-wide linkage analysis followed by ...

Ataxia telangiectasia (A-T) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by clinical manifestations that include progressive cerebellar ataxia, neuronal degeneration, hypersensitivity to ionizing radiation (IR), premature aging, hypogonadism, growth retardation, immune deficiency, and an increased risk for cancer (1). The gene mutated in A-T, ATM (ataxia telangiectasia-mutated), encodes a 370-kD protein that is a member of a family of proteins related to phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI-3-K) that have either lipid or protein kinase activity. The subset of this family with the greatest identity to ATM functions in DNA repair, DNA recombination, and cell-cycle control (2, 3). Cell lines derived from A-T patients exhibit hypersensitivity to IR and defects in several IR-inducible cell-cycle checkpoints, including a diminished irradiation-induced arrest in the G1 phase of the cell-cycle mediated by the p53 tumor suppressor gene product (4, 5). In response to DNA damage, cells with wild-type ...
In the photographs Anne-Marie Cochrane is an elfin four-year-old with her hair in bunches and a look of delighted mischief in her eyes. It is difficult to believe it is the same girl, now 17, who lies propped up next door in the sitting-room, unable to communicate except by blinking. Her physical decline has been in stages, a tragic reverse of the triumphs of a growing child. At four she could scramble up the nursery climbing-frame; at six she was in a wheelchair; at eight she had lost her power of speech. Now she is fed through a tube into her stomach. Theres no name for her illness, but doctors liken it to a neurological condition called progressive cerebellar ataxia. "We never thought of Anne-Marie as having a disability. She was just our sister," says Agnes who, dressed in a crop-top and hipsters, is the picture of a carefree 18-year-old. But her directness and quiet confidence tell a different story. "She was always a favourite with everybody. It wasnt until she got her first wheelchair ...
This disease is caused by a mutation in the SEL1L gene. Affected dogs will show first indications of cerebellar neurodegeneration at the age of 4-12 weeks. First clinical signs are loss of balance, minor incoordination of gait and intention tremor while later symptoms can be a progressive incoordination or a complete loss of mobility. .
