Antenatal diagnosis Prenatal diagnosis is possible in atasssia with a known mutation. The estimated carrier prevalence is 1: These were the first close FRDA flanking markers to be identified on the centromeric side.

Another deleterious FXN pathogenic variant. Despite the lack of correlation with the GAA expansion size, Delatycki atassiaa al [b] found a correlation between the incidence of diabetes mellitus and earlier age at onset.

General clumsiness and gait ataxia are usually the first signs to appear, often followed by pyramidal signs, upper-limb ataxia and dysarthria. Carrier testing for at-risk relatives requires prior identification of the FXN pathogenic variants in the family.

A further confounding factor is that treatments that affect the course of the disease are continuously being developed.
