  • Affected individuals should talk to their physician and medical team about their specific case, associated symptoms and overall prognosis.[rarediseases.org]
  • Prognosis In early-onset multisystemic MVA, the prognosis is poor, with about half of patients succumbing in infancy or early childhood [ 4 ].[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]
  • Increased understanding of the normal developmental pathways within neuronal development hopefully will lead to better treatment and prognosis for patients suffering from a wide variety of nonprogressive neurological conditions and neurodegenerative diseases[docplayer.net]

Etiology

  • Some of the syndromes with an unknown etiology have overlapping features (Norio and Raitta 1986), and it is only when the molecular etiology is known that a comprehensive classification system will be realized.[docplayer.net]

  • Heredity (in about 30 O/o of cases) and constitutional disposition, manifested as higher irritability of the 44 vegetative nervous system, play an important role in the etiology of stuttering and cluttering.[docslide.com.br]
  • Etiology For MVA, seven mutations have been identified in 10 out of 20 known patients [ 7 ]. Most of these mutations cluster in the C-terminal region of the protein.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]
