About CAPOS

So, what exactly is CAPOS?

This is the Medical definition:

CAPOS has five parts: Cerebellar ataxia – Areflexia – Pes cavus – Optic atrophy & Sensorineural hearing loss. It is a rare autosomal dominant neurological disorder characterized by early onset cerebellar ataxia, associated with areflexia, progressive optic atrophy, sensorineural deafness, a pes cavus deformity, and abnormal eye movements.

I’ve expanded the five parts into more details, offering personal insights, fun facts and frustrations…
