Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (NCL) are reviewed. All four main types are progressive encephalopathies characterized by neuronal and extraneuronal accumulation of ceroid and lipofuscin like storage cytosomes. The pathogenesis of NCL is still unknown, in most subtypes. This review concerns recent advances in genetic studies, broadening of the clinical spectrum of NCL and progress in prenatal diagnosis.
