Spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCA10; MIM 603516; refs 1,2) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by cerebellar ataxia and seizures. The gene SCA10 maps to a 3.8-cM interval on human chromosome 22q13-qter (refs 1,2). Because several other SCA subtypes show trinucleotide repeat expansions, we examined microsatellites in this region. We found an(More)
We determined the cumulative survival rates, in arthroplasty of the knee, of three designs of tibial component, using a change of position on standard radiographs or revision for aseptic loosening as criteria of failure. The average migration of each of the three designs in the first postoperative year is known from roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis(More)
Scapuloperoneal (SP) syndrome encompasses heterogeneous neuromuscular disorders characterized by weakness in the shoulder-girdle and peroneal muscles. In a large Italian-American pedigree with dominant SP myopathy (SPM) previously linked to chromosome 12q, we have mapped the disease to Xq26, and, in all of the affected individuals, we identified a missense(More)
This study was performed to explore the potential role of mitochondrial DNA mutations in the neurodegenerative process in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Using a semi-quantitative assay, a common mitochondrial DNA deletion mutation (mt DNA4977) was assayed in brain tissue obtained from six sporadic ALS patients and compared to four controls. In each(More)

OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency and etiology of psychiatric complications in patients with Fabry's disease. Method-Retrospective analysis and review of the records of thirty-three patients with confirmed Fabry's disease. RESULTS Six patients (18%) developed psychiatric disorders. Five patients suffered depression and two of these patients committed(More)
Congenital insensitivity to pain (CIP) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disease caused by mutations in the SCN9A gene. We report a patient with the clinical features consistent with CIP in whom we detected a novel homozygous G2755T mutation in exon 15 of this gene. Routine electrophysiological studies are typically normal in patients with CIP. In our(More)
We describe eight patients with type 1 Gaucher's disease who developed neurologic complications that were secondary to systemic features of the illness. Four patients experienced neurologic difficulties because of coagulopathy, and the other four patients had involvement of the nervous system secondary to skeletal disease. Early recognition of these(More)
An atypical patient with Fabry's disease is presented. This patient developed a left internal capsule lacunar stroke at the age of 25. The etiology of the stroke was unclear. At the age of 29 he was discovered to have corneal lesions suggestive of Fabry's disease but had no other clinical features typical of Fabry's disease. The diagnosis of Fabry's disease(More)
We report a patient with genetically confirmed Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) who developed a previously unreported feature of a mixed sleep apnea. Initial mutation analysis, by PCR, of the parental frataxin alleles showed an apparent de novo mutation in the maternal germline. Further investigation using Southern blot analysis showed that the mother did carry(More)
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCA10) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by ataxia, seizures, and anticipation. It is caused by an expanded ATTCT pentanucleotide repeat in intron 9 of a novel gene, designated "SCA10." The ATTCT expansion in SCA10 represents a novel class of microsatellite repeat and is one of the largest found to cause human(More)
