Fragile X-associated tremor ataxia syndrome
Onset of disease is typically after age 50. It affects men more frequently and more severely than women. In women, it may be associated with premature ovarian failure resulting in early menopause, hypothyroidism, or fibromyalgia. Progression is variable, ranging from gradual to rapid. There is no cure, and management is symptomatic.
