One hundred-eighteen spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 patients from 35 distinct families personally observed between 1973 and 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. The time point of data collection was 1 January 2017. Thirty-one patients were confined to wheelchair. The median time to wheelchair was 21 years (95% CI, 17.5-24.6). Thirty-seven patients were deceased. The median time to death was 25 years (95% CI, 22.9-27.1). CAG repeat number and ataxia score at first visit influenced the time to wheelchair and death.

Abstract

One hundred-eighteen spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 patients from 35 distinct families personally observed between 1973 and 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. The time point of data collection was 1 January 2017. Thirty-one patients were confined to wheelchair. The median time to wheelchair was 21 years (95% CI, 17.5-24.6). Thirty-seven patients were deceased. The median time to death was 25 years (95% CI, 22.9-27.1). CAG repeat number and ataxia score at first visit influenced the time to wheelchair and death.
