Spastic paraplegia Type 3A is an autosomal-dominant pure or uncomplicated hereditary spastic paraplegia. It is caused by mutations in SPG3A, the only gene associated with this condition. We identified a novel mutation, c.1040T>C (p. M347T), in a family with axonal neuropathy in addition to spastic paraplegia. This expands the spectrum of neurologic complications associated with SPG3A and highlights the importance of long-term follow-up and neurological surveillance in this patient population.
