The severity of symptoms and age of onset varies by the type.
The severity of symptoms and age of onset varies by the type. Some types are apparent at or before birth while others are not apparent until adulthood. All generally result in worsening muscle weakness associated with muscle twitching. Arm, leg and respiratory muscles are generally affected first.

Spinal muscular atrophy is a type of congenital neuromuscular disease affecting anterior horn cells of the brainstem and spinal cord. Spinal muscular atrophy typically affects infants and young children, presenting with progressive, symmetrical, muscle atrophy and weakness of varying severity 1,2. Although the lower extremities can have greater involvement, axial, intercostal, and bulbar musculature are also frequently involved 1,2.

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a common cause of inherited morbidity and mortality in childhood. The locus responsible for autosomal recessive SMA has been mapped to 5q11. This paper describes a genetic study of the chronic spinal muscular atrophies of late infancy and early childhood in Algeria. There were 50 index patients occurring in 44 kindreds and fourteen secondary cases.
