Parkinson disease 9

Common Name(s)

Parkinson disease 9

Kufor-Rakeb syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive form of juvenile-onset atypical Parkinson disease (PARK9) associated with supranuclear gaze palsy, spasticity, and dementia. Some patients have neuroradiologic evidence of iron deposition in the basal ganglia, indicating that the pathogenesis of PARK9 can be considered among the syndromes of neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA; see {234200}) (summary by {2:Bruggemann et al., 2010}). For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of Parkinson disease (PD), see {168600}. For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (CLN), see {256730}.
