Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis – A slowest brain death

Brain scan MRINeuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL) is the general name for a family of at least eight genetically separate neurodegenerative disorders that result from excessive accumulation of lipopigments (lipofuscin) in the body’s tissues. These lipopigments are made up of fats and proteins. However what is neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis and how it causes the brain death?

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis are a group of inherited progressive degenerative brain diseases characterized clinically by a decline of mental and other capacities, epilepsy, and vision loss through retinal degeneration and histopathologically by intracellular accumulation of an autofluorescent material, ceroid lipofuscin, in the neuronal cells in the brain and in the retina.

In the early infantile variant of NCL appear normal at the time of birth but early visual loss leading to complete retinal blindness by the age of 02 years is the first indicator of the disease; by 3 years of age a vegetative state is reached and by 4 years isoelectric encephalograms confirm brain death. Late infantile variant usually manifests between 2 and 4 years of age with seizures and deterioration of vision. The maximum age before death for late infantile variant is 10-12 years. Juvenile NCL with a prevalence of 1 in 100,000 usually arises between 4 and 10 years of age; the first symptoms include considerable vision loss due to retinal dystrophy; with seizures, psychological degeneration and eventual death in the mid to late 20s or 30s. Adult variant NCL is less understood and generally manifests milder symptoms; however, while symptoms typically appear around 30 years of age, death usually occurs ten years later.

All the mutations that have been associated with this disease have been linked to genes involved with the neural synapses metabolism most commonly with the reuse of vesicle proteins.

People with this disorder may require prolonged treatment; may be lifetime depends on the symptoms and the severity of the condition. The younger the person is when the disease occurs, the greater the risk for disability and early death. Those who develop this disease will have severe health complications such as having vision problems that progress to blindness, and problems with mental function that get worse over the time. If the disease starts in the first year of life, death will more likely occur by age 10.

If the disease occurs in adulthood, symptoms will be milder with no vision loss and will have a normal life expectancy.

The possible complications of this disorder include vision impairment or total vision loss, severe development delays at birth and dementia later in life and may have rigid muscles. Person with NCLs will become totally dependent on others for help with daily activities.

NCL is a progressive disorder and hence, it can be devastating for families as children with such disorder will require special attention and care. There is no preventive measure that they can take; however, genetic counseling is recommended if your family has a history of NCLs. Prenatal or preimplantation genetic testing may be useful on the specific type of disease.
