Presented by Drs. Deborah Hall and Maureen Leehey
Fragile X-associated Tremor/Ataxia Syndrome (FXTAS) can occur in individuals with the Fragile X Premutation. It is an “adult-onset” neurodegenerative disorder, more common in males than females over 50 years of age. FXTAS is associated with tremors, balance problems, and other neurological signs. Neurologists Drs. Deborah Hall and Maureen Leehey — who have been treating FXTAS patients over the last two decades — provide an overview of the clinical features of FXTAS and treatment options, including surgery. Patients, caregivers, junior researchers, and others may benefit from the material in this presentation.
