Summaries for Sandhoff Disease

NINDS : 54 Sandhoff disease is a rare, inherited lipid storage disorder that progressively destroys nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.  It is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme beta-hexosaminidase, which results in the harmful accumulation of certain fats (lipids) in the brain and other organs of the body. Sandhoff disease is a severe form of Tay-Sachs disease, the incidence of which had been particularly high in people of Eastern European and Ashkenazi Jewish descent, but Sandhoff disease is not limited to any ethnic group. Each parent must carry the defective gene and pass it on to the child.  Individuals who carry only one copy of the mutated gene typically do not show signs and symptoms of the disorder. Onset of the disorder usually occurs at 6 months of age. Symptoms may include: progressive nervous system deterioration, problems initiating and controlling muscles and movement, increased startle reaction to sound, early blindness, seizures, spasticity (non-voluntary and awkward movement), myoclonus (shock-like contractions of a muscle, macrocephaly (an abnormally enlarged head), cherry-red spots in the eyes, frequent respiratory infections, doll-like facial appearance, and enlarged liver and spleen.

MalaCards based summary : Sandhoff Disease, also known as total hexosaminidase deficiency, is related to tay-sachs disease and gangliosidosis gm2. An important gene associated with Sandhoff Disease is HEXB (Hexosaminidase Subunit Beta), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Glycosaminoglycan degradation and Other glycan degradation. The drugs Miglustat and 1-Deoxynojirimycin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, spinal cord and eye, and related phenotypes are macrocephaly and full cheeks

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Sandhoff disease is a rare inherited disorder that progressively destroys nerve cells (neurons) in the brain and spinal cord.

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Sandhoff disease is an inherited lipid storage disorder that progressively destroys nerve cells (neurons) in the brain and spinal cord. The most common and severe form of Sandhoff disease becomes apparent in infancy. Infants with this disorder typically appear normal until the age of 3 to 6 months when their development slows and muscles used for movement weaken. Other forms of Sandhoff disease have been described where much milder signs and symptoms begin in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood. These forms are very rare. Sandhoff disease is caused by mutations in the HEXB gene. These mutations cause a deficiency of the enzymebeta-hexosaminidase, which results in the accumulation of certain fats (lipids) in the brain and other organs of the body. Sandhoff disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. 

OMIM : 57 Sandhoff disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by an accumulation of GM2 gangliosides, particularly in neurons, and is clinically indistinguishable from Tay-Sachs disease (272800). (268800)

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 75 GM2-gangliosidosis 2: An autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease marked by the accumulation of GM2 gangliosides in the neuronal cells. Clinically indistinguishable from GM2-gangliosidosis type 1, presenting startle reactions, early blindness, progressive motor and mental deterioration, macrocephaly and cherry-red spots on the macula.
