  • OBJECTIVE Hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSPs) are genetically driven disorders with the hallmark of progressive spastic gait disturbance. [...] Key MethodMETHODS We recruited 608 HSP cases from 519 families of mostly German origin. Clinical severity was assessed by the Spastic Paraplegia Rating Scale. Complicating symptoms were recorded by a standardized inventory. RESULTS Family history indicated dominant (43%), recessive (10%), and simplex (47%) disease.Expand Abstract
