About this section


Genetics Home Reference:22 Alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR) deficiency is a disorder that causes a variety of neurological problems that begin in adulthood and slowly get worse. People with AMACR deficiency may have a gradual loss in intellectual functioning (cognitive decline), seizures, and migraines. They may also have acute episodes of brain dysfunction (encephalopathy) similar to stroke, involving altered consciousness and areas of damage (lesions) in the brain. Other features of AMACR deficiency may include weakness and loss of sensation in the limbs due to nerve damage (sensorimotor neuropathy), muscle stiffness (spasticity), and difficulty coordinating movements (ataxia). Vision problems caused by deterioration of the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye (the retina) can also occur in this disorder.

MalaCards based summary: Alpha-Methylacyl-Coa Racemase Deficiency, also known as amacr deficiency, is related to oculocutaneous albinism and albinism, and has symptoms including ataxia, tremor and autosomal recessive inheritance. An important gene associated with Alpha-Methylacyl-Coa Racemase Deficiency is AMACR (alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase). Affiliated tissues include brain, eye and retina.

OMIM:46 AMACR deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive peroxisomal disorder characterized by adult onset of variable... (614307) more...
