A MRI scans reveal cerebellar atrophy as early as symptom onset; it usually starts in the superior cerebellar vermis and extends to the rest of the cerebellum down to the brainstem, displaying a pattern of olivopontocerebellar atrophy Fig. Over half of the cases display pyramidal symptoms, hyperreflexia, and positive Babinski sign with little to no spasticity.


Development SCA36 is an autosomal dominant hereditary ataxia with late onset and slow progression. As this region has atrkfia history of intense emigration, SCA36 may also have spread to numerous other areas.

Attention coordination and anticipatory control. Differential diagnosis must therefore include SCA5, 11, 16, 26, 30, and In any case, the substantial numbers of Galician emigrants who reached other parts of Spain, as well as Europe and Latin America, indicate that we may soon find new cases of SCA36 in those locations.
