Summaries for Adult Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Adult neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis is a rare condition that affects the nervous system. Signs and symptoms usually begin around age 30, but they can develop anytime between adolescence and late adulthood. There are two forms of adult neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis that are differentiated by their underlying genetic cause, mode of inheritance and certain symptoms:Type A is characterized by a combination of seizures and uncontrollable muscle jerks (myoclonic epilepsy); dementia; difficulties with muscle coordination (ataxia); involuntary movements such as tremors or tics; and dysarthria. It is caused by changes (mutations) in the CLN6 or PPT1 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. Type B shares many features with type A; however, affected people also experience behavioral abnormalities and do not develop myoclonic epilepsy or dysarthria. It can be caused by mutations in the DNAJC5 or CTSF gene and is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. Treatment options for adult neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis are limited to therapies that can help relieve some of the symptoms.

MalaCards based summary : Adult Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis, also known as kufs disease, is related to neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis and ceroid lipofuscinosis, neuronal, 4b, autosomal dominant, and has symptoms including cerebellar ataxia, myoclonus and seizures. An important gene associated with Adult Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis is CLN6 (CLN6, Transmembrane ER Protein), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Lysosome. The drugs Cysteamine and Acetylcysteine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include retina, and related phenotypes are visual loss and optic atrophy
