The proband, a 53-year-old man, developed progressive spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy and gynecomastia at the age of 50. His father had weakness of lower limbs, and his son had a nasal voice, ocular movement abnormalities, and gynecomastia, whereas two of the proband's brothers showed either gynecomastia or tongue fasciculations. None of the patients showed any expansion of CAG repeat in the androgen receptor gene or any hormonal abnormality. Thus, this family is affected by a form of autosomal dominant spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy with gynecomastia.
