SPINO-BULBAR-MUSCULAR ATROPHY

Spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder resulting in muscle cramps and progressive weakness due to degeneration of motor neurons in the brainstem and spinal cord. Age of onset and severity of manifestations in affected males vary from adolescence to old age, but most commonly develop in mid-adult life. The syndrome has neuromuscular and endocrine manifestations. Genetically it is caused by a trinucleotide CAG repeat expansion in exon 1 of the gene encoding the androgen receptor AR.
