Abstract

Eighteen patients with the presumptive diagnosis of Friedreich's ataxia were studied. Clinical, neurophysiological and biochemical data were concordant in 14 patients and led to the diagnosis of typical Friedreich's ataxia in this group of patients. The remaining 4 patients differed from the typical patients in several respects, but mainly in the cardiological findings. It is concluded that no single clinical or laboratory finding is typical of F.A. Multidisciplinary approaches are essential to the diagnosis of Friedreich's ataxia.
