GIANT AXONAL NEUROPATHY


Alternate names

GIANT AXONAL NEUROPATHY Is also known as gan

Description

Giant axonal neuropathy (GAN) is a severe, slowly progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive motor and sensory peripheral neuropathy, central nervous system involvement (including pyramidal and cerebellar signs), and characteristic kinky hair in most cases.

Most common symptoms of GIANT AXONAL NEUROPATHY

  • Intellectual disability
  • Seizures
  • Global developmental delay
  • Short stature
  • Generalized hypotonia
