In 1980 Young and Harper described a family with an unusual form of distal spinal muscular atrophy associated with vocal cord paralysis. We report a family with three similarly affected subjects. Progressive sensorineural hearing loss was an additional feature in our patients. Electrophysiological and histological investigations did not exclude an involvement of sensory neurones. Whether the classification of this dominant disorder with the spinal muscular atrophies is justified will depend on… CONTINUE READING
