Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a commautosomal recessive neuromuscular disease characterized by progressive, symmetrical muscle weakness and muscle atrophy of the body trunk and proximal skeletal muscles, which is caused by degeneration of anterior horn motor neurons. It's the top inherited disease that causes death in infants and young children.
Incidence is about 1/6,000 to 1/10,000. The carrier ratio of the disease can be as high as 1/30 to 1/50.
