Arylsulfatase A deficiency (also known as metachromatic leukodystrophy or MLD) is characterized by three clinical subtypes: late-infantile MLD.

Am J Hum Genet. The offspring of an individual with arylsulfatase A deficiency are obligate heterozygotes carriers for a pathogenic variant in ARSA. More information here current January D ICD – Metachromatic leukodystrophy MLD is a rare demyelinating disease prevalence 1: Draghia et al [] Gastroesophageal reflux, constipation, and drooling are common problems that may be helped by specific medical or surgical leucoditsrofia. Although the presenting symptoms and age of onset vary, all individuals eventually develop complete loss of motor, sensory, and intellectual functions.

Treatment of Manifestations Whether the intent is to prolong life or to let the disease run its natural course, an extended period of nursing care with changing needs can be anticipated. Prevalence Arylsulfatase A deficiency.

In these clinical types, HSCT can result in disease stabilization and high disease-burden-free survival. This phenomenon wreaks havoc with traditional approaches to Newborn Screening so new screening methods are being developed.

Metachromatic leucodystrophy MLD in a patient with a constitutional ring chromosome Isotretinoin leuodistrofia for acne vulgaris and first episode In the late-juvenile subtype, the disease usually begins between the ages of 6 and 16 years and progresses slowly.


The studies showed reconstitution of ARSA activity in hematopoietic cells and in the cerebrospinal fluid. Professionals Review article English Clinical practice guidelines English Deutsch Clinical genetics review English Arylsulfatase A has a precursor polypeptide of approximately 62 kd that is processed by N-linked glycosylation, phosphorylation, sulfation, and proteolytic cleavage to a complex mixture of isoforms that differs from tissue to tissue.

ProLeuand p. Newborn screening leucldistrofia MLD based on enzyme activity has mwtacromatica difficult due to the high occurrence of ARSA enzyme pseudodeficiency and the inability to distinguish MLD from pseudodeficiency. Driving forces of protein association: Degradation of arylsulfatase A in the endoplasmic reticulum.

MRI spectroscopy usually shows a decrease in N-acetylaspartate and myo-inositol and, occasionally, an increase in lactate. Note on variant classification: Later, the appearance of motor signs led to a neurodegenerative disease being suspected, and the diagnosis was made with the participation of psychiatry, neurology and genetics leucodiwtrofia.

Management Evaluations Following Initial Diagnosis To establish the extent of disease and needs in an individual diagnosed with arylsulfatase A deficiency metachromatic leukodystrophy, MLDthe following evaluations are recommended: For further information, see recessive gene and dominance relationship.

The disease course may be from several years in the late-infantile-onset form to decades in the juvenile- and adult-onset forms [ Von Figura et al ]. Excessive alcohol and drug use are often associated with later-onset Metacromarica, but it is unclear if this is caused by the disease or is simply an attempt at self-medication in the face of increasing cognitive difficulties [ Alvarez-Leal et al ].


Like many other genetic disorders that affect lipid metabolism, there are several forms of MLD, which are late infantilejuvenileand adult. Analysis of arylsulfatase A enzyme activity in cultured amniotic fluid cells or chorionic villus cells has been used for the prenatal diagnosis of arylsulfatase A deficiency.

MRI evidence of a leukodystrophy. A pediatrician or family physician should be involved in developing comprehensive care plans —including the usual regime of age-appropriate vaccinations, flu shots, nutritional support, and other typical medical care.

The inheritance probabilities per birth are as follows:. Luecodistrofia the accumulation of sulfatides in oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells is thought to somehow be responsible for the loss of these cells and the resultant demyelination, these lipids have not proven to be toxic in cell cultures.

Subsequently, with olanzapine, she had marked weight gain and with risperidone, amenorrhoea. Four pathogenic variants c. In adolescents, MLD can resemble a psychosis because the disease alters the critical process of myelination, especially in the frontotemporal anatomical connections.
