Cerebral lipidoses

Metabolic diseases

by Alexander Kurz

This chapter summarises a group of diseases caused by enzyme defects, which result in the accumulation of abnormal lipid materials. The enzyme defects are due to mutations with autosomal recessive inheritance. Usually, these storage diseases have an onset at an infantile or juvenile age, but there are rare variants with adult onset.
