The major goal of this project is to determine the feasibility of performing standardized pulmonary function testing in children with ataxia-telangiectasia and to collect cross-sectional and longitudinal data on lung function in individuals with A-T to establish the natural history of pulmonary function decline in this population.
6 years and older and able to follow directions and perform breathing maneuvers in a controlled fashion.
Participants recruited only during regularly scheduled A-T Clinical Center visits or meetings for patients with A-T.
No immediate benefit to participants but may help medical treatment in the future.
