Summaries for Leukodystrophy, Hypomyelinating, 9

OMIM® : 57 Hypomyelinating leukodystrophy-9 is an autosomal recessive neurologic disorder characterized by onset of delayed psychomotor development, spasticity, and nystagmus in the first year of life. Additional neurologic features such as ataxia and abnormal movements may also occur. Brain imaging shows diffuse hypomyelination affecting all regions of the brain (summary by Wolf et al., 2014). For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of HLD, see 312080. (616140) (Updated 05-Mar-2021)

MalaCards based summary : Leukodystrophy, Hypomyelinating, 9, also known as hld9, is related to robinow syndrome, autosomal recessive 1 and robinow syndrome, and has symptoms including ataxia and action tremor. An important gene associated with Leukodystrophy, Hypomyelinating, 9 is RARS1 (Arginyl-TRNA Synthetase 1). Affiliated tissues include eye and brain, and related phenotypes are hyperreflexia and nystagmus

Disease Ontology : 12 A hypomyelinating leukodystrophy characterized by delayed psychomotor development, spasticity, and nystagmus starting in the first year of life that has material basis in compound heterozygous mutation in the RARS gene on chromosome 5q34.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 73 Leukodystrophy, hypomyelinating, 9: An autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by delayed psychomotor development, severe spasticity, nystagmus, and ataxia associated with diffuse hypomyelination apparent on brain MRI.
