704 Possible Causes for Lafora's, Disease

  • Dementia

    She had no etiology of liver disease.[] These include: Parkinson's disease, Huntington’s disease, Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, depression, and alcoholism just to name a few.[] Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease aren’t the same.[]

  • Lafora Disease

    Future therapeutics for LD will revolve around the pathogenesics of the disease.[] Abstract Lafora's disease (LD) is an autosomal recessive and fatal form of epilepsy with onset in late childhood or adolescence.[] Abstract Lafora disease (LD) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by seizures and progressive neurologic deterioration, and is usually fatal within 10 years of[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease

    […] lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs).[] Lafora disease, one form of myoclonic epilepsy, is characterized by accumulation of Lafora bodies composed of starch-like polyglucosans, which are insufficiently branched[] Abstract The glycogen storage diseases are a rare form of inherited metabolic disease affecting intracellular glycogen metabolism, and several studies suggest glycogen storage[]

  • Storage Disease

    KEYWORDS: Ageing; Alzheimer’s disease; Lysosomal storage diseases; Lysosome; Parkinson’s disease[] Loss of cortical neurons underlies the neuropathology of Lafora disease.[] disease : similar inclusions but not coarsely clumped, older age with epilepsy, myoclonus, dementia Advertisement[]

  • Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease

    KEYWORDS: 1,4-Alpha-glucan branching enzyme; Adult polyglucosan body disease; Fabry’s disease; Lysosomal storage disease; α-Galactosidase A[] The biopsy data have been compared with those of control subjects and with those from previously reported patients with Lafora's disease.[] These disorders include Lafora disease (myoclonus epilepsy) and type IV glycogen storage disease.[]

  • Chronic Liver Disease

    A detailed discussion of the contraceptive options for patients with chronic liver disease, in general, and Wilson's disease, in particular, follows the case report.[] These disorders include Lafora disease (myoclonus epilepsy) and type IV glycogen storage disease.[] […] patients with chronic liver disease (particularly viral hepatitis).[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 4

    Andersen’s disease is an autosomal recessive disease. There are many neuromuscular variants of this disease depending on the onset of origin.[] Diagnosis - Glycogen storage disease type 4 The differential diagnosis of type IV GSD includes Lafora disease, since the liver biopsy can show similar inclusions.[] Comparative study of the intracytoplasmic inclusions in Lafora disease and type IV glycogenosis by electron microscopy . Acta Pathol Jpn 1987 ; 37: 1591 –601. 19.[]

  • Marasmus

    This is discussed with specific reference to the metabolism of glycine and the possible causal relationship to the pathophysiology of the disease process.[] Aside from contrasting symptoms between the two diseases, there may be converging symptoms which would be described as marasmic kwashiorkor.[] Diseases such as measles, diarrheal diseases and intestinal parasites (making absorption of nutrients difficult and also consuming the available nutrients).[]

  • Generalized Lipodystrophy

    Further studies focusing on the relationship between these two diseases and the identification of a third locus for Lafora disease are needed.[] This report describes the natural history of the disease in two siblings (female and male) of Lebanese origin who have mutations in the BSCL2 locus (669delGTATC).[] Matsuo M. 2009 42 Autonomic modulation in patients with congenital generalized lipodystrophy (Berardinelli-Seip syndrome). ( 19376819 ) Faria C.A....BrandALo-Neto J. 2009 43 Lafora[]

  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

    Abstract More than 100 cases of Leigh disease have been reported. None have shown Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.[] A routine neuropathological examination showed no pronounced changes, such as neuronal loss, morphologically abnormal neurons, inflammation, vascular changes, Lafora bodies[] Non-surgical periodontal therapy was effective in controlling periodontal disease in the reported case, but prevention of periodontal and dental diseases is preferable for[]
