It is well known that there are many problems in classifying hereditary ataxias. In thisstudy, we rewiewed the history, family history and clinical findings of 64 patients ( 40 male, 24 female ) with hereditary ataxic who were hospitalized in our clinics between January 1984 -June 1995; and classified them according to WHO and Harding classification. The mean age of onset was 27.36. There were 18 patients with Friedreich's ataxia, 8 patients with early onset cerebellar ataxia with retained tendon reflexes, 2 patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, 1 patients with X-linked recessive cerebellar ataxia, 8 patients with otosomal dominant late onset cerebellar ataxia, 23 patients with sporadic late onset cerebellar ataxia and 4 patients with hereditary spastic paraplegias.

Keywords: Hereditary cerebellar ataxias, hereditary spastic paraplegias, Harding classification, World Health Organization classification
