SMA tipo 3 (enfermedad de. Kugelberg-Welander o SMA leve). Algunas fuentes describen a la SMA tipo. 3 como un tipo de SMA que comienza en cualquier. enfermedad, en el Consorcio Internacional de la Atrofia Muscular Espinal clasificó AME tipo III o enfermedad de Kugelberg Welander: Es la forma más. A number sign (#) is used with this entry because the Finkel type of late-onset autosomal dominant spinal muscular atrophy (SMAFK) is caused by heterozygous.

Myotubular myopathy is a rare muscle wasting disorder that occurs in three forms.

J Child Neurol ; A mutation in the vesicle-trafficking protein VAPB causes late-onset spinal muscular atrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. A cherry-red macular spot may be found but is not specific.

Rare Disease Database

All had proximal muscle weakness and atrophy. Neuromuscul Disord ; Specialised Social Services Eurordis directory. Muscle Nerve ; Identification and characterization of a spinal muscular atrophy-determining gene. Enzymatic activity of the hexosaminidase A is either extremely low or kugelbefg-welander absent in leucocytes and cultured in fibroblasts obtained by skin biopsy.


Median age at disease onset was 37 years. Years Published,, Genetic counseling may be of benefit for patients and their families.

It is the leading genetic cause of infant death. Pearn suggested that a separate kugelberg-wleander was responsible for autosomal dominant SMA with childhood onset birth to 8 years. The gait disorder secondary to glycogen accumulation in the kugelberg-welnder may start after age 1 year. The adult or chronic form type 3 may begin around the age of 10, but often the disorder is not diagnosed until adulthood.


If an individual receives one normal gene and one gene for the disease, the person will be a carrier for the disease, but usually will not show symptoms.

Prenatal diagnosis is available and recommended in populations at increased risk of this disorder. Treatment of spinal ennfermedad atrophy by sodium butyrate.

Males have one X and one Y chromosome and females have two X chromosomes. See also autosomal recessive adult-onset proximal spinal muscular atrophy SMA4;caused by defect in the SMN1 geneand autosomal dominant childhood-onset proximal SMA Nature ; 28; Pairs of human chromosomes are numbered from 1 through 22 and the sex chromosomes are designated X and Y.

Autosomal dominant spinal muscular atrophy: The numbered bands specify the location of the thousands of genes that are present on each chromosome.

Enfer,edad identified the same mutation in another 3 families with ALS8 and in 1 family in which some patients had typical, and others atypical, ALS. No evidence for linkage of autosomal dominant proximal spinal muscular atrophies to chromosome 5q markers. One of the 2 kindreds was first described by Finkel ; the second was a black family living in the same region. Chromosomes, which are present in the nucleus of human cells, carry the genetic information for each individual.


The infantile form type 1 begins between 3 and 6 months of age. The data suggested that clinically variable motor neuron diseases may be caused by a dysfunction in intracellular membrane trafficking. Hum Mol Genet ; The long-term prognosis depends on the degree of motor function attained as a child. The disorder degenerates into a state of decerebration and is fatal during childhood.

The nosology of the spinal muscular atrophies. The Johns Hopkins University. Recibido el 31 de agosto deaceptado kugelberg-wslander 4 de enero de All patients died secondary to respiratory failure, between eight and 14 months of life.

Diagnostic methods Screening of heterozygous individuals is available and recommended in populations at increased risk of this disorder individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. Hexosaminidase A deficiency enfermmedad found.
