Fragile X premutation carriers are at risk for a specific clinical phenotype that is distinct from fragile X syndrome. The fragile
X associated tremor ataxia syndrome consists of a constellation of neurologic and psychiatric findings that typically present
in midlife. The psychiatric illnesses associated include mood and anxiety disorders, and later frontal-subcortical dementia. The
author will review the genetics, clinical phenotype, radiological findings, cognitive testing, and genetic testing aspects of this
illness. Research on the estimated prevalence of psychiatric illness in this population will be presented.
