Autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix Saguenay (ARSACS) is an uncommon spastic-ataxic syndrome that is characterized by cerebellar ataxia, spasticity, and peripheral neuropathy. Though initially reported from Charlevoix-Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region in Canada, this neurodegenerative disorder has been reported from other regions of the world. There have been very few reports on this condition from Kerala, India. We hereby report a family of three brothers from Kerala who were diagnosed with this condition.
