Causas La enfermedad de Niemann-Pick es hereditaria. Notably absent were retinal degeneration, myoclonus, prominent pyramidal or bulbar involvement, and hepatosplenomegaly. Albert Niemann published the first description of what now is known as Niemann—Pick disease, type A, in Wraith JE, Imrie J. Niemann—Pick’s and Gaucher’s diseases.

Vance provided a detailed review of the cellular mechanisms of lipid imbalance in NPC. Niemann-Pick disease type C niemmann a highly variable clinical phenotype. Genetic studies showed that type D is caused by the same gene as type C1, and the type D designation is no longer used.

Malaltia de Niemann-Pick

Spasticity is striking and seizures, particularly myoclonic jerks, are common. In this model, accumulation of cholesterol, sphingomyelin, and glycerosphingolipid was a secondary event.


If statins are used, they monitor liver function. A prospective, cross-sectional survey study of the natural history of Niemann-Pick disease type B.

The events of the pathologic process had previously been considered to be elicited by lysosomal deficiency, but this study showed disturbances similar fnfermedad those in a number of peroxisomal diseases. They stated that in most adult-onset patients the presenting neurologic abnormality will be a combination of ataxia and dysarthria.

La enfermedad de Niemann-Pick es hereditaria. Neonatal jaundice, easy bruisability, vertical supranuclear ophthalmoplegia, intellectual and neurologic deterioration, hepatosplenomegaly, and sea-blue or foamy histiocytes were efermedad. A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships. The cerebral defect in Tay-Sachs disease and Niemann-Pick disease.

The cases reported by Kidd as ‘atypical cerebral lipidosis’, and Karpati et al. Support Center Support Center. An electronmicroscopic study of a case of atypical cerebral lipidosis. Niemann—Pick disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, which means both copies, or both alleles of the gene, must be defective to cause the disease.

Use of a enfegmedad sequence of localisation and endolysosomal degradation. Age of onset ranged from the neonatal period to 55 years. Niemann-Pick disease type C in adults.


Cholestatic jaundice occurs in some patients. However, by isoelectric focusing, sphingomyelinase activity in the range of pI 4. Paradoxically, less severe illness was associated with an abnormally reduced saccadic latency.

Molecular genetics and metabolism. Histologic analysis revealed that the characteristic neuronal storage pathology of NPC disease was substantially reduced in the double mutant mice. Three patients were diagnosed postnatally, and the last 2 were diagnosed based on an affected sib. Studying a year-old Nova Scotian case, Rao and Spence found elevated sphingomyelin, especially in the spleen, and even greater elevation of free cholesterol.

This suggestion was corroborated by the findings of Sokol et al. These changes corresponded to the clinical findings in adults, although the frontal cortex did not show changes on imaging. Type A patients exhibit hepatosplenomegaly in infancy and profound central nervous system involvement and unable to survive beyond two years of age. Recently, the major locus responsible for Niemann-Pick type C NP-C was cloned from chromosome 18, and found to be similar to proteins that play a role in cholesterol homeostasis.
