Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Neuronal 6

Common Name(s)

Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Neuronal 6

The neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL; CLN) are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by the intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent lipopigment storage material in different patterns ultrastructurally. The lipopigment patterns observed most often in CLN6 comprise mixed combinations of 'granular,' 'curvilinear,' and 'fingerprint' profiles. The clinical course includes progressive dementia, seizures, and progressive visual failure ({5:Mole et al., 2005}). For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of CLN, see CLN1 ({256730}).
