intracytoplasmic accumulations of a complex of glycoprotein and acid mucopolysaccharide in the central nervous system (PAS positive Lafora bodies), associated with seizures in familial progressive myoclonic epilepsy (Lafora's disease) in humans, and also reported in some breeds of dogs, particularly longhaired Dachshunds.
