Cln13 Disease

Description

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis-13 is an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by adult onset of progressive cognitive decline and motor dysfunction leading to dementia and often early death. Some patients develop seizures. Neurons show abnormal accumulation of autofluorescent material (summary by Smith et al., 2013).Adult-onset neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis is sometimes referred to as Kufs disease.For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (CLN), see CLN1 (OMIM ).
