Summaries for Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease

NIH Rare Diseases : 49 Adult polyglucosan body disease (APBD) affects the nervous system. People with this disease usually begin to show signs after the age of 40. Signs and symptoms include trouble walking due to peripheral neuropathy and muscle weakness and stiffness. People with APBD also develop problems with bladder control due to damage to the bladder's nerves (neurogenic bladder). About half of people with APBD also develop dementia. APBD can be caused by mutations in the GBE1 gene and inheritance is autosomal recessive. In some cases, the cause is not known. Treatment aims to improve quality of life by controlling each symptom of the disease. APBD likely shortens life expectancy, but with symptom management and supportive care, people with APBD can have years of productive life. Last updated: 11/29/2017

MalaCards based summary : Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease, also known as polyglucosan body disease, adult form, is related to polyglucosan body neuropathy, adult form and dementia, and has symptoms including neurogenic bladder, urinary incontinence and behavioral abnormality. An important gene associated with Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease is GBE1 (1,4-Alpha-Glucan Branching Enzyme 1). Affiliated tissues include skin, spinal cord and brain, and related phenotype is muscle.

Genetics Home Reference : 24 Adult polyglucosan body disease is a condition that affects the nervous system. People with this condition have problems walking due to reduced sensation in their legs (peripheral neuropathy) and progressive muscle weakness and stiffness (spasticity). Damage to the nerves that control bladder function, a condition called neurogenic bladder, causes affected individuals to have progressive difficulty controlling the flow of urine. About half of people with adult polyglucosan body disease experience a decline in intellectual function (dementia).
