PMID: 30901567.


Autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS) diagnosis is based on the presence of three main clinical features: 1) ataxia, 2) pyramidal involvement, and 3) axonal neuropathy. This study aimed to explore, among a cohort of adults with ARSACS, the prevalence of other signs and symptoms than those commonly describe in this disease and compare their prevalence between younger (<40 years) and older (≥40 years) participants.
