We studied five families with pediatric-onset recessive spastic ataxia from Turkey. The clinical characteristics and linkage studies are compatible with autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS). SACS mutations are responsible for ARSACS in Québec families. In four of the five families tested we detected new disease-causing(More)
Pediatric-onset ataxias often present clinically as developmental delay and intellectual disability, with prominent cerebellar atrophy as a key neuroradiographic finding. Here we describe a new clinically distinguishable recessive syndrome in 12 families with cerebellar atrophy together with ataxia, coarsened facial features and intellectual disability, due(More)
11β-Hydroxylase deficiency is the second most frequent type of congenital adrenal hyperplasia and is more common in those of Turkish descent than in other populations. The purpose of this study is to examine the spectrum of CYP11B1 gene mutations in Turkish patients with 11β-hydroxylase deficiency. Twenty-eight patients from 24 families, ages ranging from(More)
To dissect the role of immunogenetics in allergy and asthma, we performed a phenome-wide association study in 974 Turkish children selected from a cross-sectional study conducted using ISAAC (International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Children) Phase II tools. We investigated 9 loci involved in different immune functions (ADAM33, ADRB2, CD14, IL13, IL4,(More)
