La ataxia espinocerebelosa tipo 2 (SCA2) es una enfermedad genética con Spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 (SCA2) is an autosomal dominant. Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 (SCA7), currently the only known form of autosomal characterized by progressive ataxia, motor system abnormalities, dysarthria. Infantile-onset spinocerebellar ataxia (IOSCA) is a hereditary neurological disorder with early and severe involvement of both the peripheral and central nervous.
