Summaries for Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Type Iii

NIH Rare Diseases : 52 The following summary is from Orphanet , a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs. Orpha Number: 83419 Definition Proximal spinal muscular atrophy type 3 (SMA3) is a relatively mild form of proximal spinal muscular atrophy (see this term) characterized by muscle weakness and hypotonia resulting from the degeneration and loss of the lower motor neurons in the spinal cord and the brain stem nuclei. Epidemiology Prevalence is estimated at around 1/375,000. Clinical description The disease manifests after 12 months of age (usually between childhood and adolescence), after ambulation has been acquired. Two subtypes (SMA3a and SMA3b) have been distinguished by some authors: SMA3a defines patients with onset before the age of 3 years, whereas SMA3b defines patients with onset after 3 years. Difficulties walking, running, and going up and down stairs are common. The muscle weakness predominantly affects the legs and hip muscles and then progresses to the shoulders and arms. Legs are always more severely affected than arms. Weak finger trembling and scoliosis are frequent and the patellar reflex is absent. Etiology As for other forms of SMA, SMA3 is primarily caused by deletions in the SMN1 gene (5q12.2-q13.3) encoding the SMN (survival motor neuron) protein . Although there is some variation, disease severity in SMA is inversely correlated with the number of copies of the second SMN gene (SMN2 ; 5q13.2), with patients with MSA3 having three (SMA3a) or four (SMA3b) SMN2 copies. Deletions of the NAIP (5q13.1) gene, which may play a role in modifying disease severity, have also been identified in SMA3 patients but are less frequent than in individuals with SMA1 and 2. Diagnostic methods Diagnosis is based on clinical history and examination but is confirmed by genetic testing . Electromyography and muscle biopsy may be necessary. Differential diagnosis Differential diagnoses include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, congenital muscular dystrophies, congenital myopathies, primary lateral sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, and carbohydrate metabolism disorders (see these terms). Antenatal diagnosis Antenatal diagnosis is possible through molecular analysis of amniocytes or chorionic villus samples. Genetic counseling Transmission is autosomal recessive but around 2% of cases are caused by de novo mutations . Genetic counseling should be offered to patients and their families. Management and treatment Clinical trials to identify specific drug treatments for SMA are ongoing, and preliminary studies have indicated that valproic acid (as a histone deacetylase inhibitor) may improve quantitative muscle strength and subjective motor function in SMA3 patients. However, at present, management is symptomatic, involving a multidisciplinary approach aiming to improve quality of life. Physiotherapy and occupational therapies are recommended. Prognosis A wheelchair may be required during childhood for some patients (more commonly those with SMA3a), whilst others retain the ability to walk into adulthood (more commonly those with SMA3b). SMA3 progresses slowly and life expectancy is usually normal. However, deformities of the vertebral column are frequent and complications may lead to respiratory restriction.

MalaCards based summary : Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Type Iii, also known as kugelberg-welander disease, is related to spinal muscular atrophy and proximal spinal muscular atrophy, and has symptoms including muscle cramp and tremor of hands. An important gene associated with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Type Iii is SMN1 (Survival Of Motor Neuron 1, Telomeric), and among its related pathways/superpathways are ALK1 signaling events and Differentiation of white and brown adipocyte. The drugs Acetaminophen and Analgesics, Non-Narcotic have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, brain and tongue, and related phenotypes are emg abnormality and tongue fasciculations

OMIM : 56 SMA is an autosomal recessive neuromuscular disorder characterized by progressive proximal muscle weakness and atrophy affecting the upper and lower limbs. By convention, SMA is classified into 4 types: I (SMA1; 253300), II (SMA2; 253550), III (SMA3), and IV (271150), by increasing age at onset and decreasing clinical severity. SMA1 is the most severe form of the disorder and often results in death in early childhood. SMA3, known as the juvenile form, tends to show onset in childhood or adolescence (summary by Fraidakis et al., 2012). (253400)

NINDS : 53 Spinal Muscular Atrophy refers to a group of hereditary diseases that damages and kills specialized nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord (called motor neurons). Motor neurons control movement in the arms, legs, face, chest, throat, and tongue, as well as skeletal muscle activity including speaking, walking, swallowing, and breathing. The most common form of SMA is caused by an abnormal or missing gene known as the survival motor neuron gene 1 (SMN1), which is responsible for the production of a protein essential to motor neurons. This form of SMA has four types: • Type l, also called Werdnig-Hoffman disease or infantile-onset SMA, is usually evident before 6 months of age. The most severely affected children will have reduced movement and chronic shortening of muscles or tendons (called contractures). Other children may have symptoms including reduced muscle tone, lack of tendon reflexes, twitching, skeletal abnormalities, and problems swallowing and feeding. Without treatment, many affected children die before age 2 years. • SMA Type ll is usually first noticed between the 6 and 18 months of age. Children can sit without support but are unable to stand or walk unaided. Children also may have respiratory difficulties. Life expectancy is reduced but most individuals live into adolescence or young adulthood. • SMA Type lll (Kugelberg-Welander disease) is seen after age 18 months. Children can walk independently but may have difficulty walking or running, rising from a chair, or climbing stairs. Other complications may include curvature of the spine, contractures, and respiratory infections. With treatment, most individuals can have a normal lfespan. • Individuals with SMA Type IV develop symptoms after age 21 years, with mild to moderate leg muscle weakness and other symptoms.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 73 Spinal muscular atrophy 3: An autosomal recessive form of spinal muscular atrophy, a neuromuscular disorder characterized by degeneration of the anterior horn cells of the spinal cord, leading to symmetrical muscle weakness and atrophy. Onset is after 18 months. Patients develop ability to stand and walk and survive into adulthood.
