Background: Ataxia telangiectasia (A-T) is a rare disorder with many distinctive neurologic features. Although there is substantial individual variation in the rate of progression of these features, their relationship to one another or to age has not been characterized. Methods: We formulated and tested multiple elements that assess different neurologic functions known to be affected by A-T. The overall index was applied to 52 patients with A-T, 2 to 29 years of age. Results: Seven elements… Expand
Clinico-Radiological Correlation in Children with Ataxia Telangiectasia in Qatar
TLDR
Moderate to severe ataxia and marked cerebellar atrophy are quite common in Ataxia telangiectasia children and there is a correlation between AT clinical severity and cerebellary atrophy. Expand
Ataxia telangiectasia: a review
TLDR
A-T is a complex disorder with substantial variability in the severity of features between affected individuals, and at different ages, and because certain neurological features may arise later, a diagnosis of A-T should be carefully considered for any ataxic child with an otherwise elusive diagnosis. Expand
Molecular pathology of ataxia telangiectasia
TLDR
Importantly, A-T shows clinical heterogeneity, including milder forms where neurological progression may be slower or of later onset, and there is a correlation between the preservation of neurological function, decreased radiosensitivity, and the degree of retained ATM protein kinase activity.

Development of global rating instruments for pediatric patients with ataxia telangiectasia.

  • 2016
TLDR
The aim of this study was to build a scale of the CGI type (Clinical Global Impression) which is disease specific for AT, as well as to check the feasibility of the ICARS scale for ataxia in this population, and to show that ataxian severity can be reliably measured by using ICARS. Expand
Neurofilament Light Chain Is a Biomarker of Neurodegeneration in Ataxia Telangiectasia.
TLDR
NfL is a new potential progression biomarker in blood for neurodegeneration in A-T which increases with age and there was a significant correlation of NfL with age, AFP, and SARA. Expand
Cerebral Abnormalities in Adults with Ataxia-Telangiectasia
TLDR
Asymptomatic supratentorial vascular abnormalities appear to be common in adults with ataxia-telangiectasia, similar in appearance to radiation-induced telangiECTasia and to cryptogenic vascular malformations. Expand
Ataxia-telangiectasia in Iran: clinical and laboratory features of 104 patients.
TLDR
Clinical and immunologic features of Iranian patients with ataxia-telangiectasia, a multisystem disorder characterized by progressive neurologic impairment, variable immunodeficiency, impaired organ maturation, x-ray hypersensitivity, oculocutaneous telangiECTasia, and a predisposition to malignancy are evaluated.

Ataxia‐telangiectasia: A review of movement disorders, clinical features, and genotype correlations
  • A. Levy, A. Lang
  • Medicine
  • Movement disorders : official journal of the Movement Disorder Society
  • 2018
TLDR
This review elaborates the expanded phenomenology of Ataxia‐telangiectasia, including oculomotor apraxia and immunodeficiency, and estimates the presence of each movement disorder feature from previously reported literature. Expand
Ocular manifestations of ataxia-telangiectasia.
TLDR
Visual acuity of 20/50 was present in 96% of the patients the authors examined, and poor accommodation and abnormal eye movements may lead to reading difficulty reported by patients with A-T. Expand
Ataxia-Telangiectasia: Atypical Presentation and Toxicity of Cancer Treatment
TLDR
The diagnosis of ataxiatelangiectasia (A-T) should be considered in all children with neuromotor dysfunction or peripheral neuropathy, particularly those who develop lymphoid malignancies, particularly in children who develop cancer susceptibility and hypersensitivity to ionizing radiation. Expand

Genotype-phenotype relationships in ataxia-telangiectasia and variants.
TLDR
It is concluded that certain "A-T variant" phenotypes represent ATM mutations, including some of those without telangiectasia, which extends the range of phenotypes associated with ATM mutations. Expand
Mutations associated with variant phenotypes in ataxia-telangiectasia.
TLDR
The demonstration of mutations giving rise to a slightly milder phenotype in A-T raises the interesting question of what range of phenotypes might occur in individuals in whom both mutations are milder. Expand
Oropharyngeal dysphagia and aspiration in patients with ataxia-telangiectasia.
TLDR
Oropharyngeal dysphagia is common and appears to be progressive in patients with ataxia-telangiectasia and older patients also have a higher incidence of poorer nutritional status. Expand
Ocular motor abnormalities in ataxia telangiectasia
TLDR
Eye movements were examined clinically in 56 patients with ataxia telangiectasia, and electrooculographic recordings of eye movements in 33 subjects, finding abnormalities in image stabilization most likely result from dysfunction in the cerebellar flocculus and paraflocculus. Expand
Hereditary neuropathies and spinocerebellar atrophies
TLDR
The neuropathy of familial amyotrophic chorea with acanthocytosis and Roussy-Levy syndrome, and the clinical work-up of the patient with a polyneuropathy, are described. Expand
A single ataxia telangiectasia gene with a product similar to PI-3 kinase.
TLDR
A gene, ATM, that is mutated in the autosomal recessive disorder ataxia telangiectasia was identified by positional cloning on chromosome 11q22-23 and encoded a putative protein that is similar to several yeast and mammalian phosphatidylinositol-3' kinases that are involved in mitogenic signal transduction, meiotic recombination, and cell cycle control.

Helper and suppressor t-lymphocyte leukemia in ataxia telangiectasia.
TLDR
Data suggest that neoplastic transformation occurred in an uncommitted T lymphocyte that was capable of further differentiation into the distinct pathways for help and suppression, in a lymphoid analogy of chronic myelogenous leukemia. Expand
Is chromatid-type damage in ataxia telangiectasia after irradiation at G0 a consequence of defective repair?
TLDR
The radiosensitivity of patients with ataxia telangiectasia is observed at the chromosomal level in blood lymphocytes X irradiated at different stages of the cell cycle and for the same range of doses as the authors' survival experiments, consistent with the hypothesis that there is a defect in some form of DNA repair in these patients.

NCHS growth curves for children birth-18 years. United States.
TLDR
The Academy recommended using the data on growth and development collected over the past decade by the Health Examination Surveys of the National Center for Health Statistics, supplemented by age-appropriate sets of height and weight data on infants and children from the Fels Research Institute and from an Ohio State University team headed by Dr George Owen.
