Cerebellar ataxia-hypogonadism syndrome is a very rare autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the combination of progressive cerebellar ataxia with onset from early childhood to the fourth decade and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (delayed puberty and lack of secondary sex characteristics).
