We read with great interest the article by Kapur and Goldman1 of a 54-year-old man with mutations for spinocerebellar ataxia types 2 (SCA2 ; 38/22 CAG repeats) and 10 (SCA10 ; 962/10 ATTCT repeats), with overlapping clinical features of the 2 forms of autosomal dominant ataxias. The subject was Mexican and Native American, with French ancestry.
