Search Infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paralysis On this page: Infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paralysis is a rare disorder characterized by the progressive weakness and stiffness of arm, leg, and facial muscles. Symptoms of infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paralysis begin during infancy or early childhood and slowly worsen. The disorder begins with stiffness and weakness of the legs within the first 2 years of life. Patients are usually wheelchair-bound by late childhood or early adolescence. Weakness and stiffness of arm muscles occur by age 7 or 8 years. During late childhood and early adolescence, patients also experience slow eye movements and difficulty with speech and swallowing. Even though this disorder begins early in life, patients live into their 30s. How common is infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paralysis?

Quantitative sensory testing revealed significantly raised thermal, heat pain, vibratory and tactile thresholds in patients as compared with normal controls. Cutaneous sensitivity was more severely impaired in the feet than in the hand. All patients had at

This is followed by involvement of upper limbs, dysarthria, and dysphagia. Degeneration of the pyramidal tract of the spinal cord and of the columns of Goll is the principal histological feature. Ocular complications may include strabismus, pupillary defects, macular degeneration, and optic atrophy. Occurs in either sex, but is more common in young males. This is a very rare disease, with a frequency of about 1 in 30.000 persons. It is most common in Nordic countries. Inheritance is autosomal recessive (usually), or sex-linked.
Extractions: helpful? yes no Familial Spastic Paraplegia: Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia; Strumpell disease Familial Spastic Paraplegia (FSP) describes a group of largely progressive conditions predominantly affecting the legs. As the name suggests there are three main features: the legs become stiff (spasticity); there is a variable amount of weakness (paraplegia) and there is a strong genetic element. It is now clear there are a large number of conditions that fall under this grouping and progress has been made in identifying the genetic factors behind some of the more common forms. However, it may be some time before all the genes responsible are found and even longer before the exact molecular and cellular processes that give rise to FSP are understood. It is hoped that further research it will be possible to produce disease modifying and curative treatments. At a clinical level there are 2 forms of this condition: pure and complicated. The pure form is not associated with additional features, whereas the complicated form is clinically very variable with many different additional features. The pure form is far commoner then the complicated variety. However, it is now established that the situation at a genetic level is even more complicated with several different genes proving responsible for the pure form of FSP.

Extractions: It is possible that the main title of the report Paraplegia, Hereditary Spastic is not the name you expected. Please check the synonyms listing to find the alternate name(s) and disorder subdivision(s) covered by this report. HSP may be classified into two major subtypes: "uncomplicated" or "complicated" HSP. In individuals with uncomplicated (or "pure") HSP, progressive spastic paraplegia occurs as an isolated, primary finding. In those with complicated HSP, additional neurologic abnormalities are present. Some individuals with uncomplicated HSP may develop muscle spasms and difficulties with bladder control. In those with complicated HSP, associated symptoms and findings may include visual and/or hearing impairment, mental retardation, impaired control of voluntary movements (ataxia), and/or other abnormalities. According to researchers, changes (mutations) of many different genes may cause HSP. In most cases, such mutations appear to be transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait. More rarely, mutations for HSP may be inherited as an autosomal recessive or X-linked recessive trait. The basic underlying defect or defects in HSP are unknown. However, associated symptoms appear to result from progressive degenerative changes of regions of the spinal cord (corticospinal tracts) that convey motor impulses from the brain to muscles involved in controlling certain voluntary movements
