Abstract

Autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS) is a neurodegenerative disorder first described among French Canadians in Quebec. To date, 24 mutations have been reported in the SACS gene of ARSACS patients. The authors report a clinical and genetic analysis of a Japanese family with ARSACS with novel compound heterozygous mutations in the SACS gene (N161fsX175, L802P). The phenotype is similar to that of previously reported ARSACS patients.
