Schematic Cross Section of the Spinal Cord

This schematic diagram of the human spinal cord highlights the major areas affected by the pathogenesis of FRDA. The dorsal root ganglion and dorsal roots undergo excessive demyelination and are considered the primary neurodegenerative lesions of FRDA. Furthermore, note the dorsal nuclei of Clarke, spinocerebellar tracts and corticospinal tract, which endure secondary lesions in FRDA.
