Recessive Ataxia

Certain forms of ataxia are recessive conditons. This means a person must have two copies of a mutated gene for disease to occur. A person with only one mutated gene might not experience symptoms at all.

We are currently developing more articles on recessive ataxia. Please keep checking back for more updates!
