Friedreich’s Ataxia was first described in 1863 by German neurologist, Nicolaus Friedreich. FA is a neuro-muscular disease caused by the premature death of a specific set of nerve cells responsible for the control of balance and co-ordination in movement. The initial symptoms appear prior to the onset of puberty – on the average, at the age of 7 in females and the age of 10 in males.
