Slowly progressive spinal muscular atrophy of the hands (O'Sullivan-McLeod syndrome): clinical and magnetic resonance imaging presentation

Abstract

Sirs: Among the various types of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), O’Sullivan and McLeod reported in 1978 [8] a rare form involving the distal muscles of the upper limbs. Since then many cases have been described in the literature [4, 5, 10]; only one report presents a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study in five cases [3]. We report a case presenting the… (More)
