Mutations in PANK2, PLA2G6, C19orf12, FA2H, ATP13A2, WDR45, COASY, FTL, CP, and DCAF17 cause neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA), but the genetic etiology remains undefined in many patients. We report the second patient with sterol carrier protein x (SCPx) deficiency presenting with adult-onset spinocerebellar ataxia and brain MRI characteristic of NBIA.
