NCL

One of several mostly autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorders, characterized by regression of previously attained development, visual impairment, seizures, dementia, and early death. The NCLs include Batten's disease, Kufs' disease, Jansky-Bielschowsky disease, Santavuori-Haltia disease, and Spielmeyer-Vogt disease. All of these illnesses are caused by enzyme deficiencies or anomalies that result in the excessive deposition of lipid-protein complexes in neuronal tissues.
