Ataxia-Telangiectasia Society

Ataxia-Telangiectasia or A-T, is a rare and complex genetic disorder, affecting a number of different systems within the body.

It gives increasing physical disability, while deficiencies in the immune system can lead to frequent colds and infections and the gradual emergence of lung problems. There is an increased risk of cancers, particularly leukaemia and lymphoma, while sensitivity to radiation means that radio-therapy should be avoided and x-rays kept to a minimum.
