NIH Rare Diseases:45 Mcleod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome is primarily a neurological disorder that occurs almost exclusively in males. only about 150 cases have been reported worldwide. this condition affects movement in many parts of the body. people with this condition also have abnormal star-shaped red blood cells (acanthocytosis). this condition is one of a group of disorders called neuroacanthocytoses that involve neurological problems and abnormal red blood cells. mcleod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome is inherited in an x-linked recessive fashion and is caused by mutations in the xk gene. last updated: 7/15/2011
