Introduction: Autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxias (ARCAs) are a large group of neurodegenerative disorders that manifest mainly in children and young adults. Most ARCAs are heterogeneous with respect to age at onset, severity of disease progression, and frequency of extracerebellar and systemic signs. Methods: The phenotype of a consanguineous Iranian family was characterized using clinical testing and pedigree analysis. Whole-exome sequencing was used to identify the disease-causing gene in this family. Results and conclusion: Using whole exome sequencing (WES), a novel missense mutation in SLC52A2 gene is reported in a consanguineous Iranian family with progressive severe hearing loss, optic atrophy and ataxia. This is the second report of the genotype-phenotype correlation between this syndrome named spinocerebellar ataxia with blindness and deafness type 2 (SCABD2) and SLC52A2 gene.
