The disease now known as Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) was originally described in five publications by Nikolaus Friedreich over the period 1863-1877 (1-5). Since then a great deal has been learned about its pathogenesis, which has led to significant conceptual therapeutic advances although the translation to treatment that alters the natural history is yet to be made.
