Autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxia type 17 (SCA17) is known to have various manifestations. Previously, ataxia and autonomic dysfunction have been reported with this disorder, making an overlap with multiple systemic atrophy (MSA). However, respiratory complications, especially stridor during sleep, have not yet been reported with SCA17, in contrast to MSA, in which stridor occurs during sleep and is associated with an increased risk of death. Herein, we report a patient with SCA17, in whom stridor developed during sleep.
