Adrenoleukodystrophy – Wikipedia

In females, where plasma VLCFA measurement is not always conclusive some female carriers will have normal VLCFA in plasma[8] molecular analysis is preferred, particularly in cases where the mutation in the family is known. For patients where an appropriate match for a transplant cannot be found, there have been investigations into the use of gene therapy. Adult women with progressive paraparesis, abnormalities of sphincter control, and sensory disturbances mainly affecting the legs.

Overall incidence of hemizygous males and carrier females is estimated at 1: GeneReviews is a registered trademark of the University of Washington, Seattle. It ranges from 0 to 34, based on a point system derived from the location and extent of disease and the presence of atrophy in the brain, either localized to specific points or generally throughout the brain.

The phenotypic expression and prognosis of an affected male is unpredictably variable. The concentration of C White matterwith reduced volume and increased signal intensity. If an ABCD1 pathogenic variant has been identified in an affected family member, molecular genetic testing can be used for the evaluation of parents; ABCD1 molecular genetic testing is the preferred method for the evaluation of mothers of affected males.

Epub Dec Diagnosis is based on clinical features most commonly progressive spastic paraparesis and a panel of laboratory tests. While transplants have been shown to be effective at halting the demyelination process in those presenting with the childhood cerebral form of ALD, follow-up of these patients has shown that it does not improve adrenal function.


Investigational methods for peroxisomal disorders. Some at-risk family members may choose not to be tested because they fear that a positive result could impair their ability to obtain or retain medical insurance coverage.

For clarity, excerpts of GeneReviews chapters for use in lab reports and clinic notes are a permitted use. In a family with more than one affected individual, the mother of an affected male is an obligate heterozygote carrier. Symptom set 2 adrenomyeloneuropathy. It does not have a significantly higher incidence in any specific ethnic groups. For the childhood cerebral form, stem cell transplant and gene therapy are options if the disease is detected early in the clinical course.

Clear Turn Off Turn On. NALD has an onset at birth or early infancy, but manifestations may be subtle nfonatal that it is not diagnosed until late infancy or early childhood or when a leukodystrophy develops.

It may be difficult to establish the diagnosis of X-ALD in a female with a negative family history. These behaviors may persist for months or longer, and are followed by symptoms suggestive of a more serious underlying disorder including: See Genetic Counseling for issues related to testing of at-risk relatives for adernoleucodistrofia counseling purposes.
