Picture of Ataxia Telangiectasia
Ataxia telangiectasia is a genetic condition that manifests in early childhood. It causes cerebral ataxia (problems with balance and coordination), immune system abnormalities, and a predisposition to cancer. The photo depicts ocular telangiectasia, which is a reddening of the whites of the eyes caused by dilated blood vessels. Breaks in chromosomes are also a feature of the condition.
