    BACKGROUND: In the clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of the hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSPs), mutations in the SPAST gene are most frequently found and cause a pure autosomal dominant form. OBJECTIVE: To provide the clinical and genetic characteristics of Dutch patients with...
