BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Spinocerebellar ataxia 7 (SCA7) is characterised by cerebellar ataxia and visual loss. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings characteristic of patients with SCA7. METHODS Twenty patients with SCA (eight SCA3, three SCA6, and nine SCA7) and 20 control subjects underwent an MRI-based volumetric analysis. RESULTS The pontine volume in patients with SCA7 was decreased by a greater amount than in patients with other… CONTINUE READING
