The offspring of an individual with arylsulfatase A deficiency are obligate heterozygotes carriers for a pathogenic variant in ARSA. Development and reliability of a classification system for gross motor function in children with metachromatic leucodystrophy.

Anaesthetic Implications in a Case of Metabolic Leukodystrophy

Because it is a rare, leucodistrofiia disease with diverse clinical presentation and lack of clinical, neurophysiological and neuroradiological documentation, little is known about factors related to age of onset and the course of the disease, making it difficult to predict how each particular case will progress.

It is not uncommon for some patients to be diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia due to alterations in attention, language, information processing and executive functions.

In the late-juvenile subtype, the disease usually begins between the ages of 6 and 16 years and progresses slowly. Driving forces of protein association: Progression is similar to but slower than in the late-infantile form.


Metachromatic leukodystrophy

Rev Chil Pediatr, 56pp. ARSA contains eight exons in a relatively short coding region of 3. Less commonly, seizures are the first neurologic sign.

ProLeuand p. Cerebral angiogram was normal, while the metabolic profile and leptospira, cytomegalovirus and Epstein—Barr virus antibodies were all negative. Initial signs can include problems in school or job performance, personality changes, emotional lability, or psychosis; in others, neurologic symptoms weakness and loss of coordination progressing lleucodistrofia spasticity and incontinence or seizures initially predominate.

This stage lasts from three months to three years, followed by a vegetative state that can last for years and usually culminates with death at around the age of four or five. The disease progresses with neurological symptoms such as seizures, chorea and dystonia that occur after the onset of psychiatric symptoms.

GeneReviews is a registered trademark of the University of Washington, Seattle. Initial tests were negative, including diagnostic imaging. This stage lasts from three to six months.

Such testing is usually not necessary for establishing the diagnosis but can be useful when the diagnosis is ambiguous pseudodeficiency vs late-onset MLD or is being made presymptomatically. MRI metacromatoca usually shows a decrease in N-acetylaspartate and myo-inositol and, occasionally, an metacromtaica in lactate. Neurodevelopmental outcome after hematopoietic cell transplantation in inborn errors of metabolism: Walking without support, with quality and performance normal for age.

Biol Blood Marrow Transplant. ARSA enzyme activity is also deficient in many tissues in defects of the phosphomannosyl lysosomal recognition pathway, such as I-cell disease mucolipidosis II. No locomotion nor sitting without support, but head control is possible. Bertelli et al []Biffi et al []Grossi et al [] Italy.
