Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia, Type 1b; Pch1b

Description

Pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 1B is a severe autosomal recessive neurologic disorder characterized by a combination of cerebellar and spinal motor neuron degeneration beginning at birth. There is diffuse muscle weakness, progressive microcephaly, global developmental delay, and brainstem involvement (summary by Wan et al., 2012). PCH1B can be divided into mild, moderate, and severe subgroups that vary in age at onset, progression, clinical and neuroradiologic severity, and survival (summary by Halevy et al., 2014).For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of PCH, see PCH1A (OMIM ).
