NIH Rare Diseases:44 Galactosialidosis is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder caused by mutations in the ctsa gene. it is characterized by coarse facial features, macular cherry-red spots, angiokeratoma (dark red spots on the skin), vertebral deformities, epilepsy, action myoclonus, and ataxia. there are three different types of galactosialidosis: early infantile, late infantile and juvenile/adult. the three forms of galactosialidosis are distinguished by the age at which symptoms develop and the pattern of features. last updated: 5/16/2011

MalaCards: Galactosialidosis, also known as neuraminidase deficiency with beta-galactosidase deficiency, is related to lysosomal storage disease and gangliosidosis, and has symptoms including anomalies of spine, vertebrae and pelvis, macular pigmentary anomaly/cherry-red spot and short stature/dwarfism/nanism. An important gene associated with Galactosialidosis is CTSA (cathepsin A), and among its related pathways are Galactose metabolism and Lysosome. The compounds N-Acetylneuraminic acid and Ganglioside GA2 (d18:1/9Z-18:1) have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone, bone marrow and skin.

Genetics Home Reference:22 Galactosialidosis is a condition that affects many areas of the body. The three forms of galactosialidosis are distinguished by the age at which symptoms develop and the pattern of features.
