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

Metachromatic leukodystrophy

This condition can also be found in healthy subjects. Occurrence, distribution, and phenotype of arylsulfatase A mutations in patients with metachromatic leukodystrophy. Retrieved from ” https: Additional mRNA products of 3. Newborn screening for MLD based on enzyme activity has been difficult due to the high occurrence of ARSA enzyme pseudodeficiency and the inability to distinguish MLD from pseudodeficiency.

Late infantile metachromatic leukodystrophy: Am J Med Genet. Sitting with support but locomotion or sitting without support not possible; but locomotion such as crawling or rolling is present. Three clinical subtypes of MLD are primarily distinguished by age of onset: Eto et al [] The different ways in which the disease progresses are related to the type leuccodistrofia mutation.

View in own window. These patients typically receive clinical treatment focused on pain and symptom management.

Anaesthetic Implications in a Case of Metabolic Leukodystrophy

Note on variant classification: Metaromatica and demographic variables associated with coping Leukocyte arylsulfatase A activity in patients with alcohol-related cirrhosis. Gestational age is expressed as menstrual weeks calculated either from the leucodisfrofia day of the last normal menstrual period or by ultrasound measurements. It has been suggested lysosulfatide, sulfatide which has had its acyl group removed, plays a role because of its cytotoxic properties in vitro.


Supportive therapies to maximize the retention of physical and neuromuscular functions help avoid many end-stage care problems. Without it, the nerves in the brain central nervous system — CNS and the peripheral nerves peripheral nervous system — PNS which control, among other things the muscles related to mobility, cease to function properly. Psychiatrists should be aware of their role in early diagnosis of MLD, since initial symptoms may lead to psychiatric consultation.

Cerebral angiogram was normal, while the metabolic profile and leptospira, cytomegalovirus and Epstein—Barr virus antibodies were all negative.

In the final stages, children have tonic spasms, decerebrate posturing, and general unawareness of their surroundings.

Umbilical cord blood transplantation for juvenile metachromatic leukodystrophy. Long-term outcome of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in patients with juvenile metachromatic leukodystrophy compared with nontransplanted control patients.

Prenatal diagnosis is indicated for couples who have a history of an affected child. Not leucoxistrofia persons with MLD show white matter lesions initially.

Neurodevelopmental outcome after hematopoietic cell leucodisrtofia in inborn errors of metabolism: Mutation update of arsa and psap genes causing metachromatic leukodystrophy. Sulfatide accumulation in the nervous system eventually leads to myelin breakdown leukodystrophy and a progressive neurologic disorder [ Von Figura et al ].

Differential Diagnosis Arylsulfatase A deficiency.

In these clinical types, HSCT can result in disease stabilization and high disease-burden-free survival. Arch Med, 4pp.

The initial picture, given the patient’s age and symptoms, suggested the onset of a schizophrenia-like psychotic illness, although its progression and lack of therapeutic response led to the diagnosis being reconsidered.

Ann Clin Translat Neurol, 2pp. Molecular basis of different forms of metachromatic leukodystrophy. 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.

Views Read Edit View history. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
