BACKGROUND The autosomal recessively inherited ataxia with oculomotor apraxia 2 (AOA2) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by juvenile or adolescent age of onset, gait ataxia, cerebellar atrophy, axonal sensorimotor neuropathy, oculomotor apraxia, and elevated serum AFP levels. AOA2 is caused by mutations within the senataxin gene (SETX). The(More)
The spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) with autosomal dominant inheritance are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of neurological disorders with overlapping as well as highly variable phenotypes primarily affecting the cerebellum. To date, 28 different loci have been identified. Nine SCAs are caused by repeat expansions; for 14 only the(More)
Autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) are heterogeneous neurological disorders characterised by cerebellar dysfunction mostly due to Purkinje cell degeneration. Genetically, 30 different loci have been identified so far whereas the corresponding gene has not yet been determined for 12 of them. The chromosomal location for the spinocerebellar(More)
Dear Editor, MYD88 p.L265P has recently been identified as a considerably recurrent mutation in lymphoplasmacytic lymphomas with an IgM monoclonal protein (Waldenström's macroglobulinemia [WM]). The mutation was also described as a common event in several other lymphoproliferative disorders, including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and primary central(More)
