Neurodegenerative disorder

  1. 1. Approach to Neurodegenerative Disease Dr Satish T S
  2. 2.      Introduction Classification Approach Investigation Management
  3. 3.   Neurodegenerative disorders of childhood encompass a large, heterogeneous group of diseases that result from specific genetic and biochemical defects, chronic viral infections, and varied unknown causes The hallmark of a neurodegenerative disease is regression and progressive deterioration of neurologic function with loss of speech, vision, hearing, or locomotion, often associated with seizures, feeding difficulties, and impairment of intellect
  4. 4. Storage disorders         Lysosomal storage diseases Sphingolipidoses Mucopolysaccharidoses Mucolipidoses Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses Glycogenosis type II Leukodystrophies Peroxisomal disorders
  5. 5. Cellular intoxication    Amino acidurias Organic acidurias Urea cycle disorders Energy deficiency    Glycogen storage disorders Fatty acid oxidation disorders Mitochondrial disorder
  6. 6. History Till what age the child was normal Type of onset Any precipitating factor Course of illness ; Usually later the first signs appear, the slower the disease progresses Videotapes and photographs of the child’s appearance and performance at earlier ages should be reviewed
  7. 7.  History of present illness:  Onset/Age of onset  Fits ,Clumsiness or difficulty in gait  Deterioration of HMF  Ataxia or imbalance  Headache,Blindness,Vomiting, deafness  Change in personality and behaviour  Deteriorance in school performance  Increased startle response or hyperacusis
  8. 8. Below 2 years  Failure to thrive, seizures, and inability to sit and stand at 1 year and to speak in short sentences at 2 years. School-aged child  regresses in language skills and withdraws socially Older children and adolescents,    gait difficulties and loss of vision and intellectual facilities .
  9. 9. prenatal and perinatal histories are important, as they help determine whether the disorder is congenital or whether it began at some later time.  development: feeding, sleep, motor milestones, expressive and receptive language, behavior, social attainment Family History and mode of inheritance previous affected siblings, even when the diagnosis seems to be unrelated such as neonatal sepsis, sudden infant death 

Neurodegenerative Specific treatment modality disorders Mitochondrial encephalopathies Nicotinamide, riboflavin, dichloroacetate, L-carnitine, CoQ10 Wilson disease D- penicillamine, trietine, zinc acetate, liver transplantation Refsum disease Reduction of phytanic acid intake Lesch-Nyhan disease Allopurinol Fabry’s Disease Recombinant human α galactosidase A
  42. 42.  A precise history confirms regression of developmental milestones, and the neurologic examination localizes the process within the nervous system.  Outcome of a neurodegenerative condition is usually fatal and available therapies are often limited in effect  It is important to make the correct diagnosis so that genetic counselling may be offered and prevention strategies can be implemented.
  43. 43.  Onset of inherited disease can occur at any age  Bone marrow transplantation and other novel therapies may prevent the progression of disease in certain presymptomatic individuals
