Under the term “ataxia” are classified all the syndromes that cause lack of coordination of movements.

Ataxia is either a secondary symptom that comes from diseases of the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis, or primary on the ground of genetic syndromes such as spinocerebellar disorders.

The correct diagnosis of the type of each ataxia, as in many cases there are common symptoms, requires the experience of a Movement Disorders Neurologist, as treatment may change depending on diagnosis.
