Abstract
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an autosomal recessive disorder which is a fatal neuromuscular disorder in infants. SMA type 1 is first noticed either during pregnancy or within the first few months of life. Symptoms include weakness and limited movement in the limbs and trunk, impaired breathing, and feeding difficulties. Here we describe a case of severe hypotonia and respiratory distress during infancy.
