Abstract. The spinal muscular strophies (SMA) of childhood are inherited neurodegenerative disorders in which there is progressive weakness and wasting of skeletal muscle secondary to degeneration of the anterior horn cells in the spinal cord and brain stem nuclei. 1 SMA is the second most common serious neuromuscular disease of childhood, affecting one in 10, children. 2 SMA of childhood Spinal muscular atrophies (SMA) are characterized by degeneration of lower motor neurons and occasionally bulbar motor neurons leading to progressive limb and trunk paralysis associated with The history of the spinal muscular atrophies (SMA) began in the s with Guido Werdnig and Johann Hoffmann. Together, their papers present a rather complete picture of the clinical and pathologic aspects of infantile SMA: onset during the first year of life, occurrence in siblings with normal parents, progressive floppiness and weakness, hand tremor, and death from pneumonia in early ://   The spinal muscular atrophies (SMA) encompass a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized by muscle weakness and atrophy associated with loss of spinal and sometimes bulbar motor neurons.
