Nonparaneoplastic autoimmune cerebellar ataxias
Immune-mediated cerebellar ataxias are divided in paraneoplastic and nonparaneoplastic diseases. The latter include gluten ataxia, postinfectious cerebellitis, opsoclonus myoclonus ataxia syndrome, anti-GAD ataxia, and primary autoimmune cerebellar ataxia. Nonparaneoplastic immune-mediated cerebellar ataxias are characterized by subacute onset, frequent autoimmune disease history in the patient or relatives, and predominant gait ataxia, usually associated with autoantibodies.
