Spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCA10), one of the autosomal dominant ataxias, is characterized by slowly progressive gait ataxia, dysarthria, nystagmus, epilepsy as well as non-motor symptoms . The latter include dysautonomia, cognitive deficits, chronic pain, psychiatric comorbidities and sleep disorders [ [1,2]]. SCA10 is caused by expansion of ATTCT pentanucleotide repeats in the ATXN10 gene – which codes for ataxin 10 [ [1–3]]. Recent experimental data suggested a possible relationship between SCA10 and development of cancer .

Authors: Jeżowska-Jurczyk K, Kotas R, Jurczyk P, Nowakowska-Kotas M, Budrewicz S, Pokryszko-Dragan A Abstract Mental disorders occur in patients with epilepsy significantly more frequently than in the general population or in those with other chronic diseases. The specificity of epilepsy as a condition of the central nervous system with complex somatic, psychic and social consequences contributes to co-occurrence of these disorders. Moreover, common patomechanisms are suggested for epilepsy and mental disorders, associated with disturbances of bioelectrical activity and neurotransmission in certain areas of the br...
This study aims to explore the probability of developing posttraumatic epilepsy (PTE) in the following 8 years after traumatic brain injury (TBI), the risk factors associated with PTE and its cumulative prevalence. METHODS: This is a retrospe...
