Autosomal-recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS) is caused by mutations of the SACS gene, characterized by late-infantile-onset spastic ataxia and other neurological features. ARSACS has a high prevalence in northeastern Quebec, Canada. Recently, several ARSACS cases have been reported from outside Canada. We report typical clinical and neuroimaging features in a Turkish child, which confirmed genetic diagnosis of ARSACS.
