Kennedy's disease is a form of progressive spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy of adult onset. This paper describes a case of Kennedy's disease and discusses the laboratory diagnosis and the underlying genetic mechanism. Three other neurological diseases, Huntington's disease, myotonic dystrophy and fragile X syndrome, which have similar genetic defects, are also discussed.
