    state) or were too ill to travel.[] Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL) is a rare disease with onset typically during childhood; however, that developing during adulthood can lead to early-onset dementia.[] Most childhood forms of NCL are clinically characterized by progressive loss of vision as well as mental and motor deterioration, epileptic seizures, and premature death,[]

  • Parkinson's Disease

J Chin Med Assoc 2004; 67(10):521-526. 27.[] People who drink more than this run a higher risk of stroke, high blood pressure, liver disease and dementia.[]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    state.[] Onset of dementia before 65 years of age is termed as young-onset dementia (YOD).[] The authors here report a case of a 3-year-old child who presented with vision loss followed 15 months later by quadriparesis with bladder involvement.[]

  • Neonatal Adrenoleukodystrophy

    Social contact diminishes; at the end stage of the disease, the patient is in a vegetative state and dies after several years.[] […] vision, seizures, poorly articulated speech, difficulty swallowing, deafness, problems with gait and coordination, fatigue , increased skin pigmentation, and progressive dementia[] Refsum disease is characterized by progressive loss of vision (retinitis pigmentosa); degenerative nerve disease (peripheral neuropathy); failure of muscle coordination (ataxia[]

  • Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy

    Severe spasticity, progressive cognitive decline and visual impairment can result in a vegetative state.[] […] dystrophy is a rare neurodegenerative disorder characterized by infantile onset and rapid progression of psychomotor regression and hypotonia evolving into spasticity and dementia[] The nerve endings responsible for carrying message to other parts of body are affected causing a progressive loss of vision and of physical and mental skills.[]

  • Tay-Sachs Disease

    Psycho-motor deterioration increases by the second year and invariably leads to decerebrate posturing (typical of patients in persistent vegetative states), difficulty in[] Patient declines to dementia with seizures, with death by age 16 years.[] Seizures, loss of interest, and progressive paralysis begin after this together with loss of vision and hearing. The facies are coarse and the tongue is enlarged.[]

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Type 3

    Seizures began at 10 years, and they died in their twenties after remaining in a vegetative state for several years ( Stengel 1826 ).[] Dementia and motor disturbances worsen progressively. Psychiatric problems (such as aggressive behavior and sleep problems) have also been reported.[] Like the other neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinoses, it is characterized by progressive loss of vision, seizures, and loss of cognitive and motor functions, leading to premature[]

  • Mitochondrial Membrane Protein-Associated Neurodegeneration

    The patient was continued on physical therapy, baclofen, and nutritional support but has, by now, progressed to a vegetative state.[] Young onset dementias present significant diagnostic challenges.[] […] neurological deterioration (characterized by dystonia, rigidity, ataxia, and spasticity) and vision loss.[]

  • Late-Infantile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis

    Patients who cannot take nourishment orally or who are in a vegetative state will not be enrolled in this study even if the 6 months to 3 year age criterion is met.[] […] with Lewy bodies ( G31.83 ) dementia with Parkinsonism ( G31.83 ) epilepsy and recurrent seizures ( G40.- ) frontotemporal dementia ( G31.09 ) hepatolenticular degeneration[] loss of vision Progressive vision loss Progressive visual impairment Slowly progressive visual loss Vision loss, progressive Visual loss, progressive [ more ] 0000529 Retinal[]
