Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) occurs in premutation carrier men and women when they are over the age of 55. It is associated with tremors, balance problems, and other neurological signs. This course provides an overview of the diagnosis and treatment of FXTAS led by a neurologist who has been treating FXTAS patients over the last two decades. A summary of clinical features of the disease will be provided and the neurologist will discuss treatment options, including surgery for FXTAS patients. Patients, caregivers, junior researchers, and others may benefit from the material in this course.
