In a review on the global epidemiology of hereditary ataxias published in this journal in 2014, it has been reported that spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3) is considered to be absent in Italy [1]. Similar results were also published in a prevalence study in the province of Padua in 2004 [2]. However, isolated Italian SCA3 families have been previously reported [3,4]. Here we report the cases of 3 additional Italian SCA3 patients.

Abstract

In a review on the global epidemiology of hereditary ataxias published in this journal in 2014, it has been reported that spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3) is considered to be absent in Italy [1]. Similar results were also published in a prevalence study in the province of Padua in 2004 [2]. However, isolated Italian SCA3 families have been previously reported [3,4]. Here we report the cases of 3 additional Italian SCA3 patients.
