Autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS) is a neurodegenerative disorder first described in French-Canadian individuals from the Charlevoix and Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean regions of northeastern Quebec. Symptoms begin in early childhood and typically involve muscle overactivity and lack of muscle coordination, resulting in difficulty walking, moving the limbs, and speaking.
