NINDS:43 Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker disease (GSS) is an extremely rare, neurodegenerative brain disorder. It is almost always inherited and is found in only a few families around the world. Onset of the disease usually occurs between the ages of 35 and 55. In the early stages, patients may experience varying levels of ataxia (lack of muscle coordination), including clumsiness, unsteadiness, and difficulty walking. As the disease progresses, the ataxia becomes more pronounced and most patients develop dementia. Other symptoms may include dysarthria (slurring of speech), nystagmus (involuntary movements of the eyes), spasticity (rigid muscle tone), and visual disturbances, sometimes leading to blindness. Deafness also can occur. In some families, parkinsonian features are present. GSS belongs to a family of human and animal diseases known as the (TSEs). Other TSEs include Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, kuru, and fatal familial insomnia.

MalaCards: Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker Disease, also known as gerstmann straussler scheinker syndrome, is related to prion disease and frontotemporal dementia. An important gene associated with Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker Disease is PRNP (prion protein), and among its related pathways are Glypican 1 network and p75(NTR)-mediated signaling. The compounds formate and ganglioside have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain and eye.

Disease Ontology:8 Gerstmann-straussler-scheinker disease is a prion disease where the disease is very rare, usually familial, fatal neurodegenerative disease that affects patients from 20 to 60 years in age. this extremely rare disease is classified as a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (tse).
