Autosomal recessive early onset forms of motor neuron disorders including infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paraplegia (OMIM #. 607225) are due to homozygous mutations in the ALS2 gene. Here, we report on a novel splice-site mutation of the ALS2 (c.2351+2C>A) in four children of a consanguineous union with infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paraplegia.
