Genes and Disease by the National Center for Biotechnology (Excerpt)

The first signs of ataxia telangiectasia (A-T) usually appear in the second year of life as a lack of balance and slurred speech. It is a progressive, degenerative disease characterized by cerebellar degeneration, immunodeficiency, radiosensitivity (sensitivity to radiant energy, such as x-ray), and a predisposition to cancer.

NINDS Ataxia Telangiectasia Information Page: NINDS (Excerpt)

The first signs of the disease, which include lack of balance and slurred speech, usually occur during the first decade of life. The hallmarks of A-T are ataxia (lack of muscle control) and telangiectasias (tiny, red "spider" veins), which appear in the corners of the eyes or on the surface of the ears and cheeks soon after the onset of ataxia. (Source: excerpt from NINDS Ataxia Telangiectasia Information Page: NINDS)

NINDS Ataxia Telangiectasia Information Page: NINDS (Excerpt)

Many individuals with A-T have a weakened immune system, making them susceptible to recurrent respiratory infections. Other features of the disease may include mild diabetes mellitus, premature graying of the hair, difficulty swallowing ? which causes choking and/or drooling ? and slowed growth. Children with A-T usually maintain normal or above normal intelligence. (Source: excerpt from NINDS Ataxia Telangiectasia Information Page: NINDS)
